How many of you who bet on Sunday’s Queen’s Plate are second-guessing yourselves today?

The race on paper had one speed, maybe a couple of horses who like to stalk, and a whole lot of horses who like to run late.

So, the only question was, could Midnight Aria carry his speed an entire mile and a quarter?

He answered the question in the affirmative and those who believed in him were rewarded with a 16-1 mutuel.
