Siouxbiscuit Prevails in a Photo Finish in Dogwood

Over the course of her three year old campaign, Siouxbiscuit has been highly productive, but a series of close calls at the wire has likely left Mb Stables thinking that the filly could have done so much more. She’s been a little snake-bit, and her last race where she missed the headbob at the wire in the Grade 1 Test is a good example of that.

From The Gate, At The Gates Is Dominant in Bourbon Trail

When we last saw At The Gates, he struggled mightily in the slop at the Travers. Surely, he was a better horse than that, as his prior race on a sloppy track, coming here at CD, was also very poor. There was no reason to worry about rain this time around, as the track was fast, and the opportunity was there for At The Gates to redeem himself.

Wavy Girl Runs Away With Cotillion

Every year, the Cotillion can be counted on for having a great field that will send several runners to the BC Distaff. That won’t be any different this year, and winning the race can be a great way to make a statement that you should be one of the favorites for that race. Holding that distinction will be Wavy Girl, who was the post time favorite going in.
