Ooh, it was a nice race. Nereid lead the way. Then coming home Cambina was coming from behind, had to be really sharply checked to prevent running onto another horse, was able to rally from that loss of momentum to dead heat finish 1st with Nereid.

They keep showing the replay & the photo finish. Cambina was a lot further back than I thought. She really made up some ground. Then that hard check too.

About that photo finish, it is not my job on the line making the decision, but I swear it clearly looks like Cambina by an inch.
