#6 Social Whirl 6-1 W/P/S
J. Castellano/ T. Morley
Is the morning line missing something? What does it mean to be 6-1? Making Social Whirl 6-1 may lead people away from betting a good horse. Maybe we should change the horse's name to Social Distance! She seems to be a good turf horse and is great at this distance and class, although she trains on dirt and Castellano has raced her 5 times and finished 1st or 2nd all 5 times. Social likes these shorter races. She stalks through most of the race and then closes hard at the very end where it looks like there isn’t enough time for her to make it in the money.
