I’ve been watching her races. She’s got that tactical speed. The 1 horse wanted to be on the lead, but she relaxed beautifully off of the 1. She’s push button. On the second turn, I just let her go on her own. I didn’t really ask her. She went to the lead and relaxed again and went on in the straight again. She’s a very nice filly. I think two turns will be good for her, even more distance will be OK for her. She hasn’t run a bad race yet. She always fights hard. I think she can improve from that. On teaming with good friend and trainer: “It’s great. And even the owner Stephen McKay is one of our friends from a long time ago. Team Valor is great too. It’s good teamwork, and it’s fun to win for them.”
