Last Sunday my “girl’s power” placed second. Twice!
Eva Gore (GB) had a bit of bad luck at the start. She was left at the end of the pack and nevertheless managed to gobble the lost ground and in the middle of the finishing straight it already looked as she was going to win, but the extra effort she had to put in catching the leaders emptied her resources and she was beaten a length at the end. Still I am happy with her performance and am looking forward to her next race that should come up quite soon.
Viva Lea (CZE) obviously prefers larger tracks with longer straights. Under the master ride of Jaroslav LINEK she missed the first place by only 1/2 a length… and she was still coming. If the race would develop a bit different, I am sure, she would be able to win. Unfortunately this was her last chance to become a black type winner (there are no black type races for her in the racing calendar of the tracks around us), so we will have to settle with a national Listed placing.
