Mud No Match for Harriet

News and Notes

Last week, Curlin, Big Brown, Henrythenavigator, and Midnight Lute finished atop the poll to determine which stallions to follow in 2012. However, since the vote for the fifth stallion was so close, I have setup a new poll to determine the fifth stallion. Please vote for one stallion. This poll will remain open until January 31, 2012. Feel free to indicate in the comments your choice and why.

Mud no Match for Harriet

The track was muddy (sealed), but there were no scratched. Harriet (Hard Spun - Call Me Fleet by Afleet) opened at 2-1, and went down from there. She looked good in the prelims. I was liking  Elegant Heart (Lion Heart - Minkie by Red Ransom) a bit, and Cimbria (War Front - Brig by Two Punch) looked ready for action. The start was good. There was a battle for the lead between Cimbria, Wildcat Thunder (Forest Wildcat - Thunderdoll by Thunder Gulch), and Elegant Heat. Harriet had a good spot just off these three. Harriet moved closer, as Elegant Heart began to fade. Cimbria took a short lead, but she was no match for the closing Harriet, who flew by for a 4 length win. Cimbria was safe in second, with Ennie's Lament (Domestic Dispute - N Square by Notebook) moving well late to pickup third, and Elegant Heart held fourth. Note the seagulls at the beginning of the replay, who look like pterodactyls ready to pluck off a jockey. Watch the Replay.

But, she couldn't hold off Maggieredvanentune (Red Sky's - Maggie's Tune by Relauch a Tune), who pulled away for a 4 3/4 length win.

Billy O (colt; Corinthian - Zada Rae by Unbridled's Song) finished 5th in race 8 at Parx Racing, a 5.5 furlong Starter Allowance. The winner was Political Justice (Political Force - La Petite Justice by Lit de Justice)
