Steward Comment

Trainer C. Vick was fined $100 for failing to advise a rider for the horse by the prescribed time. When questioned regarding the apparent improved performance, trainer C. Vick stated the mare appreciated the step up in distance today and, in her opinion, races best when able to lead.

Slow to begin. Near the 700m had to be steadied when the pace eased. Leaving the 400m raced in restricted room for a short period of time.

The horse’s barrier gates were marginally slow to open. Had a tendency to lay in over the concluding stages. Raced wide for the majority of the race.
