    How exciting for her team and for Australia.

    I missed it. Can't find a link yet for a video. Does anybody have a link?

    I think many people are using that link so it crashed the first time and then loaded unevenly. I found that if I replayed the video after it was fully loaded, it played smoothly.

    GOOD FOR HER! It was tight, but I'm glad to see that she pulled it off.

    It seems to me that even in this close a race, that her jockey doesn't do much more than shake the reins at her? Am I right on that?

    Her jockey seems to have misjudged the finish and stopped riding a little early. He's lucky a rein shake was all that it took and she had enough time left to do anything. He was a headbob away from being the biggest screwup since Shoemaker misjudged the Derby finish line with Gallant Man.
