NOTTAHOBBY: Second time starter was coming off a five month layoff after having trouble in his first outing with straight maidens. He was being dropped into this 30k maiden claimer going 6 furlongs and flying late when running up the heels of the second place finisher. Knocked the fourth place horse off stride when bulling his way through for room. Finished third, missing the place by a dwindling neck. Had his number taken down for bothering the third place finisher. $$$

DARLING DODIE: Ultra consistent filly showed a lot of determination to win this 6 furlong turf sprint after being bumped hard at the start. This filly has real fight and can be depended on to make her run every time. A must use in the exotics. 

WARRIORS RIDGE: First time starter by the great mile grass horse War Chant ran a winning race but could not run down the lone speed even money winner. Was clear of the rest by almost four lengths in a solid field. This colt will be one tough customer next time out. We would love to see him go a mile on the grass next time out. 

THEN THERE WAS YOU: Second-time starter broke in and was steadied hard in falling back to last in this field of twelve 20k maidens going 7 furlongs. She was down on the inside and made up some ground late. This filly is much better than her first two starts suggest. Could pop at a big price in the very near future. $$$

SEDONA RIDGE: Was last seen in March 2011 finishing up the track at Tampa Bay Downs. He came back in this tough spot and was sent off at 75-1. Got creamed at the start, but settled in the back nicely and made a huge big late run to pick up the place money. This one could come back and surprise again for his low profile connections. Will use in the exotics at a big price. 

CASH EMPIRE: 2yo Empire Maker colt for trainer Bob Baffert was sent off as the 2-1 favorite. He made a big sweeping move on the turn, but could not finish up on the move. Next time out he will be a solid single to get the job done and maybe move on looking for those important points in next year’s “Run for the Roses.” $$$$$

SUNCADIA: First time starter was sent inside to press the pace, but was steadied hard nearing the turn and got shuffled back. Lost her shot, but she showed grit when swinging out into the stretch. Just missed the place by a half length. This filly has some talent and is a must follow.

RANSOM CANYON: Broke slow and was pulling jockey Krigger out of the saddle when caught down on the inside. Had to be steadied hard in falling back to last. He made a huge late run down the inside and was one of five on the line losing by a length. This one will get the win next time out going long on the grass with a better trip. $$$$$
