Despite winning the Grade 1 Frizette in October, Reflex Action struggled a month later in the BC Juvenile Fillies, not beating anyone and losing by six lengths. While it can be discouraging to lose in that manner in the biggest of races, trainer D J C Racing Stables was not going to let it stop him.
We turn the page of the calendar to December, and the first weekend of the month will see some great racing at the Big A. Part of that schedule will be the 19th running of The Demoiselle, a KYO- point paying race that has attracted seven horses that were a part of the BC festivities at SA last month. They will take on five others in a full field that has the making of a great race.
In November of last year, Moonlight Special would win the River City Handicap, but he had not been to the winner’s circle since then. After being entered in several quality stake races where his performance would be considered decent, it would also be considered underachieving.
Three weeks ago, Let Me Explain became a BC Champion, winning the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf, a victory that at the time was her fifth in a row. Unquestionably, she established herself as the queen of the turf for two year olds, but Mb Stables still had more work for her to do this year.
The KY Jockey Club will go down as a great race for Fractious, as the trainer not only had a 1-2 finish in the race, but his two horses were clearly the class of the field in the race. We didn’t have either one of them on top, but both were among our picks, making it quite a surprise that each of them went off with double digit odds.
