And darn it Pyfer didn't win the duel. If you bet her horse, you got $63.
Plus:
Give her extra points for understanding the outside (main track) played much better the opening three days.
On the grass you needed early speed.

Kent D on the winner of the Yellow Ribbon at Del Mar today, just wow. To split horses like that 2 times in a row at the critical juncture of the race, very impressive.

Flavien Prat on Aqua Julia in the 8th on Friday October 8. Prat managed a Silky Sullivan finish in a Maiden race- she didn't seem to even start running until the quarter pole when she was several lengths back of the next to last horse, flew past the entire field in the stretch and just got up.

Emily Ellingwood on Back Ring Luck in the 4th on Sunday November 14 at Del Mar.

She STOLE this one. She decided they were going too slow and made a big sweeping move to the lead and opened up with 3/4 of a mile to go. The other riders let her go, and her horse never stopped and won easily, upsetting a 4-5 favorite.

Mike Smith on Kristi's Tiger in the 7th at Del Mar on November 19.

He just let 6 horses go out on the pace and tire themselves out, then made the balcony move at the perfect time and blew by them to win at 5-1.

I wouldnt call that a great ride, if anything that was as much of a passenger ride as you can get imo.

Once Smith put the horse in the right place, he could be a passenger. That's what sometimes happens when a rider nails the pace scenario.

Diego Herrera, a 17 year old apprentice, did a nice job on For Love Not Money in the 4th at Santa Anita on 1/7. The horse got a bad break and was left at the back. Herrera did not panic, moved the horse back up into contention, and then made a nice darting move to the inside around the 1/4 pole.

He couldn't catch the winner, who won off, but he salvaged second place and cashed a check for the owners with that ride. He might be a jockey to watch.

Prat on Spielberg in the 7th at Santa Anita on Friday the 14th. When you see two horses dueling on the league, take back to a position where you are going to stay out of trouble and make a run at them when they tired. Prat did the whole thing- he saw the speed duel developing, which included a 4-5 favorite, took about 4 to 5 lengths back of it, alone, and then waited for the pacesetters to tire. When they did, he just inhaled them at the 1/4 pole and the race was over.

Not sure why you think it's brilliant race riding when a jockey takes back on a horse while its stablemate goes on a suicide mission on the front end. See the Kona Gold Stakes from last year (and your comments on it in this thread).

Props for not mentioning that the 4-5 favorite was said stablemate.

A really good ride was David Cabrera on Rated R Superstar in the Fifth Season today.

Prat is presented with the race shape he is presented with. E.g., if the other horse doesn't go out he has to rude differently

So when he's presented with an easy layup he's a genius? I'm sure the trainer had no strategy going into the race and offered no instructions to his riders.

To be fair, Prat was able to stay out of trouble in a 5-horse field.

So he's got that going for him...which is nice.

Juan Hernandez on Stones River in the 1st at Santa Anita on February 11.

The horse took a terrible stumble coming out of the gate. Hernandez looked like he was going to fall off but somehow stayed in the saddle. The horse sped off to clear the field in the first 1/16 of a mile. Hernandez was patient, rated the horse on the lead, careful not to go too fast, and the horse had just enough left to hold off a closer at the wire.
