Brandy's Girl at her best for Crank It Up Stakes


Trainer Edwin T. Broome believes that Brandy’s Girl was on her way to her first open-company stakes win in the Melody of Colors Stakes in February before she clipped heels with another horse and went down near the three-sixteenths pole. Jockey Rafael Hernandez broke several ribs and his collarbone and had to have a kidney removed following the scary spill, but Brandy’s Girl emerged relatively unscathed.
