    Default "Displayed brief foot"

    Saw this term in racing notes. What does displayed brief foot mean?

    Ran fast for a short period of time then dropped an anchor.

    Short for "brief turn of foot" - sprinted for a bit or showed some brilliance for a short distance during the race.

    Hi,
    Laurierace and Witherbee explained this quite well.

    It is always better to see 'displayed brief foot' than to see 'no rally.' Just my thought....
