Mandela raced Beholder's baby girl today. She showed early speed, then stopped. Her mom did not win first out either, and Mandela said that she was a bit "fat", indicating that she wasn't completely fit.
Also, did you know that Flightline has a juvenile full brother named Olivier? He seems to have similar leg problems!
I didn't know about Olivier and looked him up, Thanks. Stopped works in September until then his works were
positive. I don't know the Similar Leg problems Story.
I noticed the same thing...cagey Cox!
Thanks, I always appreciate being pointed toward a horse that often gets overlooked.....
Now I have one for you and Rob...
utr trainer, Brittany Russell, primarily trains at Laurel Park and Pimlico, occasionally ventures out to SAR, or CD, by Frosted.....has won first two impressively. Let's see where placed next, do watch replays
Will check out Post Time. Not dinging trainer for track she runs at mostly, though she has only won one graded stakes and that was a G3 at BEL in 2021. I look at her more like a claiming trainer type. I like the broodmare sire and dam, but both seemed to be a late developers.
Would like to see this MD bred in next race, which is hopefully a stakes race. Had a lot of trouble in last and seems very bold for being green. That's a good sign.
Bad sign is the jockey, his 3rd mount in 6 years ad first win since........2016. That probably won't cut it in a better stakes. He was good back in 2005-2013.
There are only 2 stakes races left for 2 y.o. at Laurel for 2022, and both are 7F sprints.
