Calder: Another puzzling non-call

Email

Hard to believe Ms Diller was not disqualified from second after bearing out badly under severe left hand punishment to impede Precious Lady in the eighth race. Precious Lady had to take up sharply over heels and stumbled due to the incident ultimately fading to fifth as the favorite in the five furlong turf dash. Granted she was not likely to get by Ms Diller in the final sixteenth of a mile but the severe manner in which she had to steady very likely cost her and her owner one if not two money positions.  Media Starlett rallied past all the trouble on the outside to win the weak maiden special weight dash for fillies and mares.
