What a Girl she is ? Great performance ! Did anyone else notice her gate rotation ?? An anti?? maybe ,maybe , and what female pedigree as well?? Bob Glover

As Darren alluded to, watching her walk to the boxes her fast twitch muscles were on full display

The speed and the efficiency of her gait in her walk leaves no doubt as to why she can muster so fast in the early stages, then she has a good reserve of stamina to go with it

She's an outstanding bitch, one of the best I have ever seen since Odious, Winifred Bale, Flying Amy, Bogie Leigh, Paua To Burn & Up Hill Jill and probably a few more I have missed

Hi Paul, most dogs have a clock wise rotation of feet hitting the ground as they gallop, watch her in slow motion , most times in anti clock wise rotation , some freak other dogs are known for same ??

Sorry I still don't really get it. Are you talking about changing lead legs?

Thats what I thought bob meant Paul but what he means is normally a dog front left would hit ground first followed by right front then back right and finally back left in a clockwise direction. Bob is saying shes the reverse of that or anti clockwise foot placement. Hope that helps. Cheers

She's certainly an exciting commodity, although I still consider
Zoom Top a freak.

Are you showing us your age Ron ? Ha. Zoom Top was before my time m8. I was at W.P on Sat night to witness her MDC victory & she just brained them $1.70 was a good price & I took it for a bit. Her racing style reminds me a lot of the immortal Flying Amy & the champion Mint Magic who are the best 2 bitches I've ever witnessed in the flesh but she's not in their class just yet. Still there is more to come I reckon.

Yes spot on Steve, I was at Beaumont park the night she took
on all distances, and equaled or broke all track records in
that one run. But the Pearl is going places fast, lets all
hope she stays sound.

What's the story with the ownership of SAP?

There seems to be a huge ownership group and I see she goes back to the Lord's to breed with when she retires.
