First time starter showed good early speed in this 6-1/2 furlong downhill turf sprint. She battled on till the end and was coming back late to just miss the place while between horses. She will be a good play next time out for trainer John Sadler.
First time starter took all the action in this 6 furlong sprint for straight maidens as she was sent off at 6/5. She was bumped and forced out at the start, chased outside and then moved inside on the turn. Came out in upper stretch and made a nice late run but had no shot at getting to the lone speed. Did finish more than seven lengths clear of the rest and will be a solid single next time out. $$$$$
First time starter for trainer John Sadler took some action and ran a nice even race finishing fourth in this 10 horse field. Missed the show money by a neck, but no mistakes next time out. $$$
WHINE FOR WINE
Just destroyed this allowance field by more than three lengths with Mike Smith fitting this gelding like a glove. Look for the move up and another score. $$$$$
Was coming off the layoff for trainer Doug O’Neill and going a mile on the grass. She ran a much better than looked fifth just missing the win by just 1 1/2 lengths going willingly along the inside till the end. She will be set for the win next time out.
Was coming off the layoff for trainer O’Neill and ran a good fourth just missing the show by a dwindling 1/2 length despite hopping at the start to be dead last in this 11 horse field going 5 1/2 furlongs. He launched a big late run at the top of the stretch to close fast. Was claimed by Peter Miller and he will have this one spotted for the win next time out.
Couldn’t catch the lone speed in here but finished a clear second, finishing almost six lengths clear of the rest.
