LED ADVANTAGE: Broke slow and to the inside, she got in tight on the first turn and was dead last. She than advanced on the rail leaving the backstretch, came out for room but was steadied behind horses when checking off heels, she kept coming and finished third by a neck in what was a big time effort for a 32k maiden claimer. $$$$$
UNIVERSAL PEACE/NO STADIUM: Both horses are exiting the same race, a race won by Hidden Blessing wire-to-wire, Universal Peace finished second beaten a neck despite trouble and No Stadium was a half length behind Peace. Would love for them to both show up in the same race, it will be a very good exacta box.
HIS SISTERS MISTER: Ran a big race despite trouble but just could not run down the lone speed, this looks like a good claim for trainer Doug O’Neill who will have this guy spotted for a quick return on his investment.
EXFUSION: This guy will be a very good single in his next start, in this his first race he was five wide early and continued in a wide stalking position the entire race, he continued willingly to the end finishing third beaten by less than a length. $$$$$
GUMPTION: Has always showed the ability but just could not get over the hump, she exploded down the lane today and got that elusive first win, these types usually jump up and run several more good races.
KHENDUM: First time starter was bet like the race was over when sent off as the 7-5 chalk, she never ran a step but we will keep an eye out for her next time.
CAF… CON LECHE: It looks like trainer Peter Miller has changed the running style of Con Leche who in his early races was a flat out front runner, he came from off the pace today and ran a winning race despite losing by a nostril, next time he will be in the winner’s circle. $$$
CRAIG’S STORM: Was bet from 8-1 on the morning line to 7-2 at post time and just ran his heart out battling tooth and nail from start to finish in this 11/16 turf route finishing second behind the 9-5 chalk.
AFLEET MAGIC: Ran a winning race today in this 25k maiden claimer but the wide trip cost him the race, he is sitting on the maiden breaker.
PORTFOLIO: Was last seen running at the Fresno Fair when finishing second, she was being bet with both hands today but was facing the odds on Stunning Ally who just ran them off their feet, she did finish a clear second so maybe next time.
GOLDEN GATE FIELDS
FLYING HOME: Santa Anita shipper blitzed this group of 8k maidens and there were no claims, she will repeat on the move up.
GAMBLERS RULE: Broke slow and stumbled to be dead last, she made a wide run into the stretch and just came flying to be second beaten by a dwindling half a length.
GOOD NEWSMAN: Santa Anita shipper crushed this group of 20k maiden claimers in this flat mile on the grass, look for him to show up in one of those starter allowance races either here or at Hollywood. $$$$$
RICHARDSONGNDANCE: Exploded once again down the stretch to pick up his second straight win, he was claimed by a top barn and could move up and get the hat trick.
