Of all the fillies who got beat double-digit lengths in the Fantasy, she stands out as the one that had the worst trip. Here’s what the chart caller had to say about her journey around Oaklawn: “Fire Coral clipped heels then lost irons past the wire the first time, fell far back, remained in the back for the run up the backstretch, swung out five wide turning for home, improved position while finding her best stride too late. ” She’s by Curlin and looked good winning an allowance race in March. Has the potential to be a stakes winner.
