Whistling Account

Gatorette held the early advantage despite stumbling at the start, pulling 2, 3, lengths ahead of the rest Casanova Move was the nearest pursuer and Shared Account (Pleasantly Perfect) held a nice spot in the third. The favorite, Justwhistledixie, was rated in 4th. In the stretch, Justwhistledixie made her move on the outside. Casanova Move went with her and for a time these two raced together, before Justwhistledixie pulled away for the victory. Casanova Move is starting to look like a really nice horse. If she could escape Justwhistledixie, she might win one of these things. Shared Account tired and finished 6th. Watch the Replay.
