Answer:  LED TO VICTORY

(This pun was clearly a wire-to-wire winner!  The only thing that I smell is leather, horse sweat, and horse apples!  Okay, maybe a little desperation from the bettors.  But, besides that, it’s all roses!

All familiar old clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “lotive” before, and it was the only jumble to give me pause.  The answer letter layout was a thoroughbred of a twelve letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  The final answer didn’t come to me immediately, but after figuring on the smaller words the rest just ran its course.

Awesome horse racetrack cartoon!  It looks like 7 was this horse’s lucky number.  I think Jumble Jeff would be a great name for a thoroughbred!  I know it says Jumble Downs, but this looks like it could be Santa Anita, with the Santa Ana mountains in the background.  Be well and do good, friends.  Be responsible during this pandemic, and we’ll all get through it, folks.)   —   YUR

    VIOLET was a stinker. Criminally! For the answer..I didn’t have the letters for what I thought the first word would be, and didn’t find LED for a while. After that, the puzzle solved Itself! LL
