Was that just not the coolest? I just happened to stop at a friend’s place Saturday afternoon and they had the race on. I know some folks are crediting the five pounds, but a far as I’m concerned, that filly won fair and square; after all, she tripped coming out of the gate, and that more than made up for the weight!
