Analysis

Jessica Harrington: "She's had a great time in the mares' races and I must thank the pattern committee for putting on such a lovely program. She had a great run of it during the summer and was able to take a step up in class each time and the races were all spread out nicely. Two-miles-two (furlongs) is too short for her and I was taking a chance today and she'll probably end up being a three-mile filly. She has got big black-type now and we'll bring her back in the spring."
