Me You and Her all Win

  • 15 Comments

Ok, so Me You and Her (Smarty Jones) is only one horse, but her performance was impressive enough for three. Celtic Symphony and Big Things Happen battled early, as Me You and Her was sitting about mid-pack. She came rolling on the outside and went past them like they were standing still. The final margin was better than 6 lengths. Pretty nice margin for a 5.5 furlong race.

Zooger gets a Moving Violation

Press the Limit took the early lead, pursued by Zooger. That one took the lead in the stretch and drove clear. Mundo En Fuego, who has hampered by a slow start, came running, but 27-1 shot Zooger had enough to hold him off. Moving Violation (Medaglia d'Oro) was never involved, running at or near the back throughout. Interestingly, the winner and the 2nd-place horse are both trained by Anthony Dutrow, but their odds were very different, 27-1 vs. 5-2.
