Nice to see Forever Unbridled back. One could argue she was best in the Ladies Classic.

That was a very fairly run race and she hung like a rat IMO. I had her in that one.

I'm happy to see the horse run but she wasn't best in that race.

Really? Seemed like a slow pace dominated by 2 horses who raced on top of it.

She had a perfect trip and every chance to run by them, but failed to pass two better hosses. There's no shame in that. She's great, just not as great as Songbird or Beholder. The alleged slow pace had her pretty close with very little ground to make up. Coincidentally she make up very little ground.

What race did you guys watch? Forever Unbridled was last early. Songbird and Beholder are 1-4 and 1-3. The announcer calls it a very easy for her half. Come on guys.

So your point is Songbird and Beholder should have ran a 45 second half so Forever would take advantage and close on them? While the pace was not blistering it was still 23 and 47 which isn't walking. Forever was close enough to them on the far turn but could not run them down and had a really nice trip. The top two ran the race the way they should and were better under the conditions of the race.

Beholder was best in the Distaff and it wasn't close.

45 is excessive. 23 flat 46 flat probably gets UF home.

The pace was fair enough, she just wasnt good enough. What I am hearing is if the pace was blistering and the race fell apart she would have won...hardly makes her best in that race.

Songbird was 3rd best IMO the debate would be between UF and Beholder who chased wide.
