CALDER: No irons, no problem

EmailDespite having her jockey Eduardo Nunez slip out of his right iron leaving the backstretch, Spirited Women was still good enough and resolute enough to capture the second race. Nunez needed about a sixteenth of a mile to recover his lost pedal but once back in the saddle properly steered Spirited Women to the outside where she easily ran down Reba's Affair and Holiday Ashley to win the mid-level maiden claimer going away. The race was the first of four on the card switched from the turf to a sloppy main track.
