From last to first in a furlong

Watch "Broad Appeal" (Broad Brush) come from 20+ lengths back to win. Great job by the horse and jockey

No fractions, those horses looked like they were flying in the beginning. I think that jockey was just along for the ride, although most jocks would have probably gave up by then, he must have knew he had the most horse. That was impressive, Seek Gold has nothing on that.

Equidaily has a link that translates the late call:

"Third!, second! (before she's even there), will (she)
make it?, will (she) make it?, will (she) make it?, will (she) make it?,
(she) made it! (before she did), (she) made it!"

also reminds me of Gorella with the horse getting there just in time

I loved Gorella's race! People at the OTB must not of known who she was, or the jockey, everybody thought the race was over by stretch. I was like "do you know who's riding her?" and "he's not even using the whip!". Even Tom didn't think she'd make it, he was acting like the lead horse was going slow, but it was yielding turf, so really it was probably quite fast and tiring. Still the people who bet the caught horse said the jockey must not of seen Gorella, I replied "if he is racing Gorella, he must assume she is coming, without even looking back."

Do you think Gorella will inherit Megahertz' popularity?

I never liked Megahertz, or at least I never followed her. I like Gorella because she's had some very good races against the best competition, including the boys and some of the best horses across the globe. But, now with Julien Leparoux aboard she has taken a step up, and we might be seeing a championship season for her in the making, maybe a win in the Mile this year.

Hi, I'm from Japan.
This horse is a mare and she was really amazing horse!
This race is only Grade3 but regarded as some kinds of legendary race in Japan.

I'm very surprised to be intoduced the races in Equidaily.com

Oh alas! This fabulous video has been removed. Any chance at all that you can repost it??? Hundreds of members at the Equine Photographers Network would be grateful for the opportunity to view it. What a race! What a horse!!
