Lost in the largeness of the Preakness luster was the stunning victory by the filly Vodka in Tokyo. Vodka romped to a seven length victory in The Victoria Mile Grade I. The defending Japanese Horse of the Year won with Yutaka Take up amongst a field of 18. Vodka powered her way to the mile win 1:32.40.
Like many others, I bet and lost twice with Vodka at Nad Al Sheba, but I'm going to have to give her a mulligan for her efforts in the desert. Her next trip is the Grade 1 Yasuda Kinen Mile against colts in Tokyo on June 7.
