Such a disappointing finale for Lady Eli...farthest back she's ever come in in her entire career (furthermore, the first time she hasn't won or placed in her entire career). :(

She was in such a tight spot heading into the first turn. Horses all around her, banging against her, head in the air, fighting Irad's hold on her. She must have expended a lot of energy, and been mad as hell. That can take a lot out of a horse.

Oh definitely. Just such a shame. Really hoping whoever gets her next decides to keep racing her, she's such a joy to follow

Lady Eli update: Has cuts both hind legs. Vets going over her now to see if she needs stitches. She should be OK but definitely had excuse
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Wow! How the heck did that happen? Poor girl. I'm so glad she's being retired and hope she will have better luck being a mom.

I suspect it happened in that scrum going into the first turn, when so many horses were packed tight around her. I bet she got clipped by a horse behind her running up on her heels.

Fuhhhh! Poor girl. She got smashed around on the 1st turn, probably stung like a mo-fo!
