October 4th 2008: BEL Race 8

Belmont Race 8, The Frizette

Sky Diva? The public, and the Turk, liked the 5-10 combo, I didn't see the 1 horse at all. The 1-5-10 exacta paid a nice $58.20. A good quality video feed through Twin Spires showed the 10 horse, Gemswick Park shot from the far outside post, and then put up some really fast fractions, at 22.3 and 45.4. Sky Diva had a ground saving trip and then exploded. Persistantly, the 5 horse, closed like a freight train and I'm looking forward to calculating his last 1/4 mile pace.

I never saw Sky Diva coming. His only previous win, his maiden breaker, left us with this PP comment "won in handy fashion." Ditto in this race.
