Her next start will be a big one, as it will show whether she needed the race when runner-up off the layoff in the GII Rachel Alexandra S. or that she’s hasn’t progressed that much from her 2-year-old season. Trainer Brad Cox seems convinced she will run better in her next start. “There’s no doubt that she should be better in her second start off a layoff,” Cox said. “Her last two works have been very positive and that’s a good sign for a horse turning three. I was happy with her last race, but I understand she has to move forward. I think she will.”
