Fair Grounds notes: Unbridled Forever has both speed and stamina


When Lemons Forever won the 2006 Kentucky Oaks for trainer Dallas Stewart, she was a 47-1 shot making only her second start in a stakes races. A paceless, one-run closer, Lemons Forever needed the right circumstances to score a big win. In fact, after her Oaks upset, she lost eight straight starts over the course of a year before finally breaking through in a third-level allowance, the only other race Lemons Forever would win before she was retired to be a broodmare.
