920x920

Really liked Cupids race in the Rebel yesterday.  He had a bad start, rushed to the lead and that would usually spell doom for most horses.  After getting the lead, he was able to slow down his second quarter and when Whitmore came running late in the stretch, Cupid dug down and would not let him by.  He showed a lot of heart to finish like he did after a not so ideal beginning.  As for Whitmore, I loved his race and would be who I would chose going forward from the race.  Off the pace, had to chase home a horse who was able to dictate his own pace and didn’t get much pace pressure.  Went a little wide on the turns (because of post, and running style) and was finishing well.  Might have hung a little but definetly ran a lot further then Cupid did.  He might be the play in the Arkansas Derby if there is a little more pace pressure on Cupid.
