The Indiana Stallion Stakes marked the only 2nd place finish for Hope during the Indiana meet. All those who witnessed the race saw that Defining Hope didn’t give up without a fight! Hope actually came eye to eye with I Came To Praise in the stretch and refused to give up, but got nipped at the wire. A gallant effort! I was so proud of her. I later learned that she had a case of the sniffles that week which made her effort all the more special.The link to the race video is below.
