Fair Grounds: Speed on grass


Yep - pace holding really well on the turf course today. Front-running Love Dare's jockey, Shaun Bridgmohan, clung to the fence through the stretch run like a scared toddler holding on to his mama, and Love Dare just kept opening more daylight. Not many moons ago jocks were avoiding the turf rail for anything, and with good reason. One more grass race, the 9th, on this card. Finding the speed might be a good plan.
