    A very impressive win, she took command in the stretch.
    Could not be happier for her class act owner and trainer.

    Harbor of Grace, a lovely town and a very lovely win! Sentimental favorite with me as a Maryland native and someone who almost remembers when the giants of the track raced there. I certainly rember Kelso and Carry Back. They were my "poster" boys.

    Dubai! Now there is something I would love to see. I'd rather see her there than the BC really, it just seems like a better fit. I've seen nothing among the males that impresses me this year, Stay Thirsty needs a little more time before he really matures and peaks (my opinion).

    If she has one more convincer like this (and of course she would have to defeat BL) I don't think anyone can touch her for HOTY.

    I believe they are going to race her once more against mares and then decide between the BC Ladies and Classic. Of course if she goes in the Classic then she controls her own destiny. If she beats Blind Luck in the Ladies she could still be HOY, depending on how things shake out in the other divisions.

    Congratulations, lovely little town. I hope it was spared in the horror show that Lee has spawned.

    Not sure how bad the flooding there is but several roads are still closed there.

    Great picture - captures her 'tude, that's for sure! Loved her walk back to the barn - she really took in the crowd's appreciation.

    I had the pleasure of meeting "Grace" about an hour after her win. She looked like she wanted to go out and do it again. She was wired up and frisky and putting on a show for her company. I'll try to get the pics onto my computer this weekend and link them. She's a lovely filly with a pretty girlish face.
