Did you see Winning Envelope's last race? She looked home free less than a 1/16 from the finish, then slammed on the breaks inexplicably to finish third. Didn't look like she tired, because it was so sudden. Hope she finishes up strong this time.

Yes, that is why I picked her.  That was right after layoff, condition is there now, and she gets new rider.  As you know I am longshot player, and 12-1 looked good to me. 

(I hit Bolita Boys and Bon Raision who I've been on for a while, yesterday.)

Hope I'm wrong but I feel she may be losing interest and is declining a bit. 

And yup, magic wand scratched.

Winning Envelope in race 12 (should be good odds)
Winter Sunset in race 9 (chalky)

arg they are both running in R12.  
I will still do my w/p on Winning Envelope because odds, and I believe she will do well. 

To accommodate Winter Sunset, I'll do an exacta with her and winning envelope.

She's running in the Arlington Million.  Scratched from Beverly D.

Congrats! So you think her sudden stop was due to conditioning? I can understand that. It just seemed so sudden.

Magic Wand scratched from the Million or the Beverly D?

Maybe she wanted to win but the jockey didn't.  Maybe jockey didn't *persevere* as often said in charts. (hers said "folded" which it looked like for sure).  Maybe he moved too soon to have her forwardly placed and given the rest of the ride he gave her, maybe she plum ran out of steam.  Notice she is getting a new rider.  That made me sit up and notice.
