Oh, boo. Very disappointing.

On the other hand, now I'm less frantic to see the race live (it conflicts with Trick or Treat here). So, there's one less thing my five-year-old will have to discuss with a therapist decades from now ("My mom chose a horse race over ME!").

Default Beholder scratched from Classic

Every morning I've been checking "Bloodhorse" in dread of seeing this headline, and sure enough, it's happened:

http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-raci...-of-bc-classic

I was so looking forward to that race.

I would have loved to see her run in the Classic but on the other hand, I am glad a sound decision was made. The boys can rest easy now and not fear getting beat by a girl
