Yes!! And Dance Card closed nicely. I don't see much of a bias today.

The jockey on the winner disagrees with you ;)

Very happy for the winning connections.

I'm so happy she goes out a winner. She's been so awesome.

Ditto on this. Even though Judy killed my ex box I am happy to see Groupie Doll go out in style...

Some love to the runner-ups too! Dance Card ran very well off her trip, and Judy the Beauty STILL has yet to run a poor race (or even off the board) in her career.

Judy killed mine too. Whenever I bet her she screws me over, and does when I don't bet her. Oh well! That's racing.

The top 3 are all solid horses. I hope Dance Card is stretched out again.. she's better longer.

Any chance Wes Welker doesn't have the best life in creation? I mean seriously... we're at the BC, and you're catching balls by P Manning. Lucky bastard.

Groupie Doll sat 4-5 until the turn when she overtook the frontrunners. Yesterday horses were struggling to overtake anyone! Track is much more fair today.

Can I just point out, sometimes they should wait till they open the gates. Sweet Lulu walked in and half a second later had to start, so of course she had a slow start. I see this quite often actually and it really annoys me :/

BTW for those watching the BC.com feed, how nice is it to see Union Rags romping in the paddock during the Lane's End video?

I was referencing the fact that he called the track "super speed favoring" in his interview. Closers are doing better but I still think they're hanging and have a disadvantage against pace-pressers- you want to be in front at the top of the stretch. Mostly I think the rail is the real story, but that isn't getting nearly as much talk.

Ohhh - missed that interview. I'm not much of a fan of Maragh anyhow. It does seem like the rail is dead, the winners are staying at least 3-4 wide from what I remember. They watered the track again after the F&M Sprint, so they are making some efforts.
