Exellent assessment. What was Rachel's Beyer figure for the Woodward? Thanks.

Her ability to run like a 1:2 morning line favorite, go a distance of ground against older males, race between horses through speedy fractions, and do this all despite having a slightly better than average rider makes her great! Her running style and grittiness remind me of Slew and Bid.
