Race 2 — #4 Keen Bidder – In this 1 1/16 turf route Bidder was making what looked to be a winning move up the rail on the second turn but was blocked off heels into the stretch. He took up sharply and continued behind horses until midstretch. Split horses and surged late for the place money. $$$$$
Race 3 — #2 Confucius Junior – First time starter and a release here on the website; bobbed at the start and the jock just sat and let him settle into stride. Moved up on the turn and made a fast four-wide run and mowed them down being ridden out in an impressive win at 7-1.
