Peggy's Hope Scores Over Dixie

The race was delayed a bit when Wild Appeal flipped behind the starting gate and was a late scratch. Those already in the gate were backed out. Not sure if this delay had any affect on the horses. Long Live Dixie came out of the gate well and was rushed up with the early leaders, Tiger's Mischief and Poetic Lana. She vied between those two for a bit before checking and falling back steadily to end up last. Tiger's Mischief and Poetic Lana wilted as well, ending up 4th and 5th respectively. This race belonged to the closers of which Peggy's Hope proved best.

Hoya Pacifies the Pacificator

Quebec City looked home free in this one, but Hoya kept coming and coming and final wore that rival down. Pacificator came out of the gate nicely, but was soon 9 lengths off of the leaders. However, once he settled, he began to pick off his rivals, despite going 4 wide, and ended up a credible fifth. Looks like a promising beginning for this one.
