Race 4 — #5 Gobbler’s Knob – Was squeezed back after the start and was dead last until the ¾ pole when he moved up on the outside but he had to wait leaving the turn and was switched out to find some clear sailing; once let loose, he stormed home like a freight train to win going away by more than six lengths. This gelding will find a nice starter allowance race next time out and you will see him in the winners’ circle for a repeat win.
Race 5 — #6 Talktoomuch – 2k claimer has run some good numbers for this level. In this turf race going a flat mile, she was bumped hard at the start and became rank and was steadied hard into the first turn and was dead last and looked like she had little or no shot. She settled outside horses and split horses into the stretch and just made a long determined run to get up at the wire in what was a first class effort. This mare was claimed out of this race by Mike Mitchell so look for the move up and a repeat win.
Race 6 — #3 Lift Our Luck – It was the “ping pong” Dave system in this race as Luck was the only first time starter in a maiden claiming race. She looked great on the track and was garnering a lot of late action; she was far back but made a huge late five wide run into the stretch and just won for fun while under a long late hold. Look for this girl to show up in a starter allowance race in her next start and repeat. $$$$$
