I thought it was a real question whether ABS reducing the braking force would have at least given her some sort of indication the front was being overloaded.

Some have been saying "No, she was turning, ABS doesn't help if you're turning". Others are saying more like "Maybe, because if she hadn't been braking so much she could have made it". I still don't know.
if you want to change your story from, a 90°turn and the wheel tucked, to, she was still braking and didn't turn much, to satisfy your desire to justify ABS I have no problem
