I like seeing popular, fit, capable horses kept in racing. From a fan perspective, it is so much more fun to follow a horse I've seen and have come to know, and it is really cool when they continue with success.
It's good for the breed too, because buyers and breeders can really see which horses/lines are competent and also sound and tough.
She lost the Cigar Mile only by a nose last year (to Stay Thirsty) and when she went into the sales ring it was highlighted that she was nominated for the race again this year.
The fact she is going to take another crack at the race is sporting and to me its not exactly a surprise. There is nothing to lose especially with her in top shape if not in the best condition she's ever been in.
Yes, was it Laugh Track she barreled into - as if Rajiv hadn't even seen the horse alongside. Know GD was boxed in much of the race, but he's lucky she stayed straight and true, and didn't do more harm.
