Ballast won race #7 at Murray Bridge Racecourse in South Australia on March 7. His record is now 44-3-5-3. Led almost the whole way, lost the lead heading for home, then fought back and won. Nice job. He wears the #12 saddlecloth, breaks from gate 3.

Samara won the Capitiva Island Stakes (race #12) at Gulfstream today. Her record is now 15-5-3-0. She is Hard Spun's 68th stakes winner at the very least. I don't know how up to date the Darley website is.

LOL, love the Dixie Chicks, and she sure was singing Goodbye Earl, and all the rest of you, today! I didn't realize Oaklawn puts their entire racecards on YouTube, another reason to like that track.

Comment about Spinoff in an article on DRF regarding the upcoming Louisiana Derby.
"....Spinoff, a 11 3/4-length allowance winner at Tampa Feb. 22. The latter breezed five furlongs in 1:00.59 Saturday at Palm Beach Downs for trainer Todd Pletcher, traveling comfortably in a sharp move while just ahead of workmate Biblical, a 4-year-old that won a second-level allowance at Gulfstream on Feb. 23. Spinoff is the co-third favorite in the race at 8-1 odds with Sueno."
