  1. Yes, the figure 8 definitely can make a difference in head carriage, freedom of motion, stride fluency, and the end result may have been impacted.

    Even so, it was a better ride from Borel, who immediately took RA out to the two path when the frontrunner dropped in on him and slowed the pace right in front of his filly’s nose.

    They were just lobbing along, and RA needed to come home pretty well to win this like a champion.

  2. Thanks ASSmussen. you trained the greatest horse down to just so so! She was a front runner, you wanted her to be held back and come from behind.
    You really should never be allowed to “train” another horse.
    Calvin always took his cues from Rachel she won. When you told him to hold her back, she lost!
    Rot in hell.
