This Candy Ride colt was steadied sharply into the first turn and angled in on the second when splitting horses. He came out and made a five wide run into the stretch and stormed home to get the win going away. We would love to see him going long on the grass.


Ran a big race when a clear second behind the odds-on 70-cents-on-the-dollar winner. He was almost four lengths clear of the third place finisher in this 10 horse field and will be a solid single next time out.


Was trying turf, sprinting and ran a big race, finishing third just missing the place by a ½ length. He was trying hard at the end and will be right there next time out. A must use in exotics and picks.


Was 9/2 on the morning line and got hammered at the windows going off at 9/5. Ran like odds-on, winning going away by 3¾ lengths. He got claimed for the $8k in what looks to be a real good pick up. We look for the move up and a repeat win. $$$


First time starter had the misfortune of meeting up with the odds on Global Hottie. This filly would have won on any other day as she finished second while almost eight lengths clear of the rest. Mike Smith will get her home next time out and we will be using her as a solid single. $$$$$


Was much the best in here but had to settle for the place money. He had to wait for room leaving the second turn. Got boxed in from the upper stretch to the sixteenth marker, then split horses and surged late but lost by a neck in what was a huge effort. $$$$$


This Papa Clem first time starter surprised the 30-cents-on-the-dollar chalk winning going away by three lengths while the odds-on and highly regarded Yana had to settle for second, five lengths clear of the rest. This filly can flat out run and will be a force as the distances get longer for these 2yo’s. $$$$$


First time starter ran a deceivingly very good race, finishing fourth, just missing the bob by a nostril for the show dough. We will be all over him next time out and the price will be right. $$$



First time starter was well bet and prepared in getting the win against a very good field. We look for a repeat win.
