College Ace Fine
College Ace is A1 after his win yesterday, and will now have to wait to see what the handicapper thought of the performance. He only won by 1 3/4 lengths, but the front pair were 26 lengths ahead of the third, so let's keep fingers crossed that he takes into consideration the unfortunate fall of Meggies Beau, and subsequent unseat of Fire And Rain and treats College accordingly. College Ace looked a million dollars yesterday, and was turned out beautifully by Trish. I was having a look back through November and from 8 runners, the girls won 5 Best Turned Out awards, a fantastic strike rate, and a testament to all of their hard work, care and attention. There is an old superstition in racing that the best turned out winners never win the race, and Sam at one stage last month was offering to pay the girls not to win the turn out so that he could win the race!! At least College proved that superstition wrong yesterday!!
