A healthy Blue Dancer would be tough to handle


It was clear that something was bothering Blue Dancer when he finished last in the $50,000 Swift Thoroughbreds Inaugural at Hastings in his first race this year. Going into the 6 1/2-furlong Swift, he had a perfect record sprinting, and as a juvenile, he was fast enough to set the early pace in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.
