In yesterday's G3 Suwannee River Nellie Cashman sat close to the pace throughout and was bumped at the top of the stretch which saw her finish 6th beaten 5L. She traveled strongly during the race but seemed to just flatten out after the bump.
Although she won her stakes at a mile and 1/8th as a 3 year old she may be finding that distance a little too far now that she is older. I'm inclined to shorten her up in distance back to a mile 1/16 or less and let her use that big stride to run the other horses off their feet.
She has come out of the race well so we will take our time in picking her next spot sometime in the end of March or beginning of April.
