CARNIVAL QUEEN: Broke right on top but dropped back and angled in on the turn, she was making a strong move leaving the turn but had to be steadied hard when a horse broke down in front of her, she then got in tight in upper stretch but split rivals and came on strong to finish a bang up second.

LOUP BRETON: Irish invader for trainer Julio Canani was bet down to .80 cents on the dollar and put in a breathtaking performance for an easy win while under a tight hold, this guy will be eating stake next time out.

DRIVELIKETIGER: First time starter showed big speed and would have won any other day in a 32k maiden claimer but had to catch the big drop down Mark Of a Warrior who won at .50 cents on the dollar, Tiger was a clear second by more the two lengths and will wire them next time around.

TURBULENCE: First time starter was 5-1 on the morning line but got bet down to the post time favorite he broke slow and was bumped hard and had to be steadied, he looked like a beaten favorite but put in a huge run on the rail and he just did fail to run down the lone speed losing by a nostril. This guy will be a great single next time out. $$$$$

DUCK RIVER: Was pulling her jock out of the saddle as this girl wanted to be let loose but what usually happens in these cases the jock took hold and got her in trouble when stuck down on the inside, she was starting to come on once again but clipped a fallen horse and the rider lost his whip if that is what you want to call these new feather dusters, she was able to hold second in what was a very good try despite all the trouble.

GET MY FIX: Ran a huge second when coming on strong and almost running down the undefeated Eoin Harty colt American Lion. This guy is on the improve and will be a force as the distances get longer. Trainer Brian Koriner may be on the Kentucky Derby trail with this up and comer.

LEGENDARY MUD: Just ran a much better than looked race at 10-1 when finishing with big interest late. Mud could make a quick return to the races and may just pop at box cars.

STAND TALL: Is a 7 furlong specialist and picked up another win at this distance despite getting into trouble when checking off heels leaving the turn, he is a must use first and second at this distance on the move up in class.

SCREEN TO SCREEN: Trainer Doug O’Neill picked this guy up for 16k and this could end up being a very good claim, we will take our shot with him if he gets a move up in class and a jockey switch next time out.


SHUDACUDAWUDYA: Ran big time winning the Golden Nugget Stakes and paying $21.40, and he was just another big release on this website in my daily horse selections.

WENTZVILLE MAN: Just exploded down the lane at 12-1 and just did fail to run down the even money chalk, this guy is sitting on the win, all he needs is some pace to run at.

GO BAROQUE: First time starter was crowded and took up right out of the chute and was far back to the turn, he than had to circle five wide and was coming on late. This one is a must play next time out so dig deep and go to the window and hopefully will see him before Christmas. $$$$$

PLAY NINE: Ran possessed winning going away under a very confident ride, she will move on up and repeat.
