My Dad was alive to ENGINE SIXTY NINE in the Pick-3. I just watched the replay and it sure looked like she didn't want to win that race. If I had a bet on her (or was a steward) I'd be asking questions ... for sure.

Yeah, thanks. I caught it after I posted......
Here's the thing: If Jordan felt something was off w/the horse, then she should probably have been much more aggressive in slowing him down/pulling him up.
It seemed she was completely out of rhythm w/the horse in the stretch. I mean, I am all for the "quiet passenger" in theory, but that was just too much. Perception is everything, ESPECIALLY in this sport right now, and there are some who in watching that race may conclude that she was intentionally trying to lose. Or desperately afraid of winning.......
Curious to hear George Papadromou's thoughts.....................can someone ask him what he thought of the ride? Has Jordan commented?
OK Ogy. I just saw the headline after writing the Michael Straight accident the other day, and thought "How many of these riders named Straight are there? They're multiplying like Bazes."
