So my mare has been doing super amazing with barrels this year. She is the type of horse that doesn't slow down for the barrels, she just tucks herself and turns tight. Honestly when it comes to the logistics of her runs, she is as good as it gets for how well she does the pattern. I can be first in most races just because she is so good at the pattern. The reason I don't win more races is the fact that she isn't a super big strided horse so she can't run as fast as some others. I'm quite ok with that because she does so well anyway.
Now for the actual question... Some of the jackpots I go to do best out of 2 runs. Which works ok because her second run is always faster. She is often .6 seconds faster on her second run which makes a world of difference for winning :)
The problem is that for the jackpots that only have one run, she can only make 2D. I have tried to use an over under to get her to run faster but it makes no difference. The only thing that sort of helps is to kiss to her around the barrels to get her to keep running full out to the next one.
I am hoping that someone has some ideas because I am totally stumped and would like it if she would go harder the first run so that I wouldn't need the second one to place better.
