The Spiral – Post Race

Track playing fast

Fast and Accurate was able to take back off the early lead and stalk a quick pace from the rail in the early going. Was able to move off the rail approaching the far turn and went about 3 wide as he was in top gear gaining on the leader. Seized the lead prior to the 1/8th pole and although going a bit wide and looking leg weary was able to hold off several late closer’s for the victory. Great effort no doubt but I am not so sure that Fast and Accurate can get a longer distance right now. The final furlong was run in a very slow :14 seconds which would also give reason for thinking he can’t get a longer distance right now.

Blueridge Traveler finished well to get 2nd money as he came from well out of it to gain the place from the rail. The fact that the final 1/8th was run in :14 seconds makes me feel that although he was gaining, his late punch isn’t all that strong right now.
