Default Most Impressive BC Race?

What race do you think was the most impressive performance? I'm fine with you picking a losing horse if you thought that was great too....

I thought it was Wise Dan but a few others were pretty neat as well.

I didn't pick him, but I thought Magician ran one hell of a race in the BC Turf.

I thought so too Laura, his kick 60 or so yards from the wire was quite impressive, knocked me out of a very sizable pick 3

Will Take Charge probably ran better than anyone yesterday. He might get scary good next year if Lukas can keep him together.

Beholder for sure. She destroyed a very good field without getting the lead.

Hugely impressive. I really didn't think he could run a strong mile and a half. He kind of proved me wrong on that...

So, yeah, Magician for me as well. But also, of course, very honourable mentions for Wise Dan and all of the top three in the Classic.

And I liked New Year's Day too - probably the most impressed I've been by a BC Juvy winner since Uncle Mo. Hope he can do something next year.

I thought it was a very nice run by ROSALIND in the Juvenile Fillies.

I'd have to rewatch to say for sure which race really struck me as most impressive, but I'm all kinds of happy for Groupie Doll. I was pretty proud of her, Wise Dan, and the gutsy finish of Mucho Macho Man, Will Take Charge, and (the seemed tiny by comparison to those two giants) Declaration of War.

Beholder for me, she showed a new dimension and won for fun vs two champions who were nowhere to be found in her wake
