Young America Abracadabra 2000 4:58 Abracadabra continues to slide

Races again featured the lite stuff.  The key to many a race was control of the left side. For instance Prada got the left at the start and held America One in check.  America True's Dawn Riley commented on the left handedness of the race course: "It wasn't just one big shift but oscillations of about 10 degrees, back and forth. The lefties had more pressure, and we seemed to gain on every one of those."  This is not to say that the left side call was a no brainer.  Stars and Stripes Ken Read had the right side in mind saying: "We wanted the right; we won the right on the starting line; we took the right … and we were wrong!"
