Sage absolutely crushed the field. Was Alex a rabbit for her?
Based on the times, I'd GUESS so. (Of course, 1% of the time it could also have been injury.)
Another amazing run for Ms. Hurta in, I believe, only her 2nd race (after her 800M Buff record setting performance a couple weeks ago) in a long time. Looks like it's a huge CU record improvement for her, as the CU record books showed her prior mile best as 4:38.39 (from way back in 2017). (She remains at #4 in the CU records book, but much closer behind only 2 World Champions and Olympic medalists in Simpson and Coburn, and a hopeful young pro and Buff great in Dani Jones.)
