Miss broke very alertly from the 1 hole, and had a clear lane to the mid-inside, ourushing the highly regarded Joe Hearns to the turn, and held that one safe, into and through the stretch, midtrack, where she just failed to last, very gamely, over Festive Event----who is a quite capable full sibling to Talentedmrripley.

This was a very fine effort on Miss' part....she took the turn from the super-fast pup, Joe Hearns, clearly outbreaking and outrushing him, and managed to withstand his constant pressure throughout. Getting caught by Festive Event is no shame at all, and that one wass loose all down the backside, and had a clean run for 3/16ths at her----yet didn't corral her until the last 3 jumps.

Those are some monster dogs she's competing neck and neck with. It's hard to believe RFA has such a great racer in its stable.

I'll tell you Martin....she's as good a breaker as I've seen in a while....and she's rushing the turn like she really wants to get there first, now....and if she railed tightly on the turns, she'd be one of the top handful of dogs in the country. Her fault is that she is vulnerable not only to closers, but to inside closers on the turns.....she doesn't chop them off when she enters the turns----she holds her line in the 3 lane.

Is that something that is likely to change in her running as she evolves as a racer?

Not likely, Becki....though sometimes you will see a dog change their preferred line when moving to a different track. Most of the Whistlers prefer to run a bit out from the rail on the turns, just like their sire did.
