Calder: Just wondering...


Got a call from a fan who was wondering how the winner of the eighth race, Enable , was allowed to run without a published work on his resume' since his last start considering the horse was not only eased in his only previous outing but changed trainers to boot since that race.  Instead, Enable went off at 15-1, recovered after nearly getting knocked down leaving the gate, circled five wide turning for home and ran down the game but tiring leader Reprized Halo to win his maiden for trainer Joseph Hennessy and jockey Javier Santiago.  Good effort from runner-up who was hard used on the lead, withstood a bid from Willie's Way into the stretch but had no answer for the winner.

    I had no answer for the caller other than this kind of thing happens here all the time!
