ROKSANA/SAVANNAH SKY: I have written in this column on several occasions about horses exiting the same race and this was a great example of what can happen. Roksana, who finished fourth in her last start for trainer Marty Jones, won this race at almost 18/1 paying $37.60. The kicker was the filly who ran behind her, Savannah Sky, finished second at 18/1 with the exacta paying $477.00 for two bucks. Savannah Sky was fanned seven wide into the first turn, came on to get the lead and just missed by a neck.

BLIND DREAMS: This filly had a horrible trip in the early going and then just had too much to do late. Finished third, 12 lengths clear of the rest. She is sitting on the maiden breaker. $$$

IMWITHTHEBLONDE: My pat saying, as I am usually with the Blonde. This blonde however was coming off a layoff but still ran a much better than looked third and will be hard to beat next out.

THE MAD HUNGARIAN: Two weeks ago he was a late scratch as somehow they brought up the wrong horse to run. He came back in this spot and was completely overlooked in the betting, going off at 6/1. He changed his running style as he is usually on the front end. Took back and surged late for win.

FREDDIES DREAM: Freddie had some blind dreams in this downhill turf sprint for straight maidens. He ran a big race despite a six wide run into the stretch, finishing fifth and just missing the place by 3/4 of a length. He will be a great price play next time out. $$$

TESTER: Was coming off the layoff for the hot trainer D’Amato and just blasted home, winning by eight lengths. We look for him to repeat and move to a starter allowance race.
