I bought the down the road as I do not have a bleeder. I just wanted an extra edge. We live in a powder dust and windy area where we are here in AZ. On Friday we won a race mind you our FIRST 1d run by 2tenths. Wow, jump from 2d to 1d with my only difference being the Equi-Resp. Thank you for making such a great product. Look forward to more wins with the GREAT mare!
