Light Green Goes Softly; Tiger is Lawless

  • 1 Comment

Softly Spoken Overtakes Light Green

To the surprise of many (including Tom Durkin who called her by her stablemate's name first call), Light Green went right to the lead. She was soon headed by the experienced one, Softly Spoken. But, Light Green refused to give in and fought on gamely to come up just a head short. She may have been aided a bit by Softly Spoken who bore in slightly, as if she was trying to bite Light Green. Casanova Move, stablemate to Light Green, also ran a good race, closing in on the leaders at the finish.

The Tiger is Too Much for The Law

The Law horses (I'm the Law, Cop Beat, and Top Cop) finished together. But it wasn't exactly the trifecta, as they finished 7th, 8th, and 9th respectively. Tiger Shark went right to the lead, pursued by Mr Missile, Silent Count, and Premo's Success. But, Tiger Shark was too much for the gang and drew off. Mr. Missile ran on for second, while Admirals Mountain closed wide for the show spot. I'm the Law didn't have much impact on the race. He came out of the gate ok and seemed to settle, but only passed a couple of tired ones. A number of horses were a bit wild in the post parade, especially Silent Count and Fujiamo.

Thanks for the summary starts and places for the Peace Rules two year olds.  Appears that he has passed on his heart and his class.  I just hope they are still running next year.
