It was his first race with a new trainer [Thorn song]
and the trainer, [name escapes me, but Glimmer will know!];) said he wanted to 'open up' the blinkers, but this is the result. Bet they don't try that again. The guys on TVG said he had done that several times over the years, [I was back and forth with ESPN and TVG,] but apparently, it wasn't unknown for him to do that.
