The Whitney 2019 (715 Views)

The video I was watching acted up at the head of the stretch during Saturdays running of the 2019 Whitney Stakes. The picture jumped around and I couldn't tell who was who nor relative spacing between competitors. When the picture settled down, at about the finish line, one horse was obviously ahead but which one. I was confused because the last discernible image had five horses spread across the track trying to make their moves. I was particularly concerned about the Servis entry whom looked to me to be trying to bump his way to the lead. Maybe just deja vu but I hadn't expected five across the track and the appearance of a competitive race late.

When it became clear that McKinzie had burst away from the field to win going away my world was back on its axis. Yoshida's late chase reminded me how good that one is. A day later I'm wondering, just a bit, about how good was that effort was. I suppose it was very good but Preservationist either got run into the ground or bounced. The same could be said for Monongahela the Servis trainee which I expected to finish a non threatening third or fourth.

Certainly if either of those two and even add in Vino Rosso, had run their tops Yoshida and McKinzie would not have been such distant figures on the horizon. Yet the top two finishers were each impressive in their own way and may each have paired or earned new tops.

While I'm not expecting it I would be curious to see either or both of the top two on the lawn next time out.
