The Pride of Cassidy

  • Comments
World Gone Wrong and Red With Guilt broke awkwardly. Bear's Marie (Congaree) broke on top from his rail post. She was closely followed by Cassidys Pride (Medaglia d'Oro) and World Gone Wrong. Bear's Marie tired on the turn and Cassidys Pride took over. Mindemoya was flying late, but Cassidys Pride had more than enough to hold her off. Australian Posse was also going well late.
