Benny’s Notes for 2yo MSWs for Wednesday, August 6

Race 5



Race Note: Was 9-2 ML.  Winner came back at 6-1 in the 97K Stillwater & was eliminated at the break at 6-1.

Trip Note:  Away OK.  Outquicked early by two outside foes.  This was the one that was just in front of Rewarded last time on her outside (see note below for 6-23).  Ridden along through the turn in a good spot with plenty of open air.  Slight lugin while changing lead early in stretch and decent stretch drive.  Wasn’t losing ground to winner the last 100 yards and believe she wants more ground but not sold on this one yet.




Race Note: Second place finisher was a bleeping blur in the stretch and galloped out a pole in front.

Trip Note:  Broke fine.  In the clear on the outside and showing decent speed.  Was in a good spot with plenty of open air into and early in the far turn.  Was nibbled at for more but no quicken.  Ran even early and faded.  Admitting I was wrong about this one.  Thought she’d run better than this.

6-23-19:  Was 20-1 ML and off at 12-1.

Trip note:  Away fine. Clean.  Showing decent speed from the gate. Slightest of pauses entering turn.  No big deal. Held rail with a ‘lapped on’ foe to her outside and a neck in front of this one.  When the outside runner got about 1 length ahead of this one her stride changed. She hates it down there. Running OK nearing top of stretch and rider looked to switch her out but she’d have had to eat some throwback. Rider changed his mind and stayed at rail, sticking her right handed and demanding a rail rally which never materialized.  This one hates rail and gets an outside draw today. Might be a huge number and think she can outrun her odds and maybe get to an underneath spot in some verticals.
