UCANTHANKMELATER: Ran his heart out in this mile $30k maiden claiming race but took a neck defeat to the 6/5 favorite. He was more than six lengths clear of the rest and will be a solid single next time out at this level.

WATCH THIS CAT: Filly was going down the hill in this starter allowance race and won like a good thing at even money, drawing away after crossing the dirt while under a hand ride and a long hard Bejarano hold late. Lots to like here and looks like a nice repeater if kept on the grass down the hill.

SONNETEER: Maiden was going a mile on the dirt. He settled down on the inside and looked ready to run. Moved to the outside on the second turn, five wide into the stretch and six wide in midstretch. Still managed to storm home to just miss by a nostril in what was a super effort. We would like to see Keith Desormeaux put his brother Kent on next time out. If so, head to the window.

SIBERIAN IRIS: Maiden filly was going down the hill and was dead last for the first half mile. She then came out leaving the hill and made a real nice late run to just miss the show dough by a head. Ran like she wants longer and we will give her a big shot going a mile on the grass.

BIG BAD JOHN: $20k maiden claimer was going 1-1/16 on the dirt and was in a good stalking position chasing the lone speed. He ran on late and was gaining on the winner with every late stride but came up a half-length short. No mistakes next time if he gets some pace to run at.
