Did you watch the race with Love and Money? She will not be restrained early! Sometimes I wonder if at distances like a mile and under, it doesn’t make sense to just give the horse its head. They probably use up as much energy fighting the jock, as she would winging it. At least with the latter, they would build up a huge lead, perhaps cause the trailers to make an early move. They probably will end up sprinting her. Six furlongs might be her max.
Chad debuted a good one today at SAR in Jack Christopher....but, for the life of me, I can't understand why Ortiz continued to whip him mid-stretch with a 7 length lead?!?
Yes , what happens next time, nobody knows how that effects the horse
and Ortiz does that to much. Trainer and Owner should hold a meeting with him.
That's a sprinters pedigree imo. 8.5f type

That filly at Woodbine came in: 7f Ready Lady 1.21.3 aw
I saw that race. She was very professional. Tomorrow, her close relative, Ready For The Lady, out of a daughter of Ready Lady's dam(Lady Shakespeare), debuts in race 5 at Woodbine for the same connections. He has not been working quite as impressively as the filly, but works aren't everything, right?
At any rate, MTR continues to do very well with his first time starters! The old guy has still got it!
Souper Legacy(Hard Spun out of a Candy Ride mare) proved too much to catch for Ready For The Lady in the off the turf 7f 5th race at Woodbine. RFTL ran well from off the pace, giving MTR another second place on debut runner, to join James Aloysius, Consumer Spending, Dressed, Bubble Rock, and Labarde. Consider his debut winners, Ready AP, Plus Chic, Koala Princess, Ready Lady, and On Thin Ice, and I have to say he is having a very good year with the juvies!
I'll check that race out. MTR is having a good year, Sire and BmS isn't bad either.
Race 6 Saratoga might be a Key race for 2 yr old Turf fillies, Well Bred and the field was

Races like the one you referenced are fun to analyze. The winner was impressive, but the runner up, Kinchen, should be a short priced favorite in her second start. She encountered quite a bit of trouble, which for a firster could have caused her to pack it in. She continued on to just miss.
