Jane Lyon stood in the Del Mar grandstand watching the horse she bred and raised, Flightline (Tapit), round the far turn on his way to greatness in the Sept. 3 TVG Pacific Classic Stakes (G1).
“I was just trying not to start crying so hard that I wouldn’t be able to see him when he came across the finish line,” she said. “You can’t expect this. You can’t wish it. And to have it happen and for him to continue to grow like he is, better and better and better, it’s just a miracle.”
Flightline’s five winning margins now total 62 3/4 lengths.
