She was never more wonderful than in the one race she lost by about 8 inches. I've never seen more gameness in a Thoroughbred.
A horse gallops with his lungs
Perseveres with his heart
And wins with his character. --Tesio

The jockey must have been on suicide watch following that lone defeat, given how easily she should have won the race. She was by far the best horse in the race. He had her way too back early on. A match race between her and the great filly Ruffian would have been interesting, particularly with their complete opposite running styles.
