Although neither won their Grade III’s at Tampa, both Rusty Slipper and Appealing Cat definitely deserve honorable mentions. Rusty Slipper was running in her 3rd race having run only once as a two year old. She went rather wide on the turn and looked as if she was still running a little green but did well to finish 4th in a competitive Florida Oaks. Appealing Cat went off at long odds and quashed the rest of the field apart from the winner (who was in the process of breaking the track record) in the Endeavour Stakes. Well done girls.
