Jan-26

While I would like to congratulate the winners of the various Eclipse awards, it's evident that grass racing doesn't get its due. No way Caledonia Road deserves the 2 year old filly award over Rushing Fall. The latter is undefeated, and like Caledonia Road, won her BC race. The difference is, she defeated a strong contingent of Euros who often give us fits in the turf races. Caledonia Road lost her stakes debut(Frizette, Gr. 1) while Rushing Falls won hers(Jessamine, Gr. 3). I knew the voting would be close, as I'm aware of the dirt bias, but I thought RF's undefeated status would get her the award.
