The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   Hard Not To Like, heroine of the 2013 GIII Marshua's River S. at Gulfstream Park, came out on top at 13-1 in a wild finish in the GI Jenny Wiley S. at Keeneland. With Javier Castellano aboard, she well-placed in fifth early, awaited racing room on the far turn and came flying when guided toward an opening along the rail in deep stretch to take it by a neck. Discreet Marq (Discreet Cat) was second; Abaco (Giant's Causeway) was third. The final time for 1 1/16 miles was 1:42.38. Hard Not to Like, runner-up in the 2012 GI Ashland S. over the Polytrack, entered off a win in a $100,000 optional tagger on the Gulfstream grass Feb. 28.
