No. 2 SHACKALOV: $30K maiden ran his eyeballs out in this race but could not get to the odds-on, 40-cents-on-the dollar winner though six lengths clear of the rest in this eight horse field. Will be another solid single next out if kept at this $30K maiden level.
No. 3 MAESTRO DEARTE: Looked all the winner in this mile turf race for straight maidens but looked to be stopped in mid-stretch when having to check with no room down on the inside. Got out in deep stretch and blasted home for the win with a ton of horse left. This one can move up and repeat on the grass vs. winners next time out.
