DEL MAR

VILLAGE KITTEN: Ran his heart out coming from last to second while making a four wide run into the stretch. He was coming on strong but just could not get to the odds-on winner who held Village Kitten off by a half a length. If this one gets some pace up front to run at, he will get the win next time out going long on the grass.

ALLTHELEAVESRBROWN: And the skies were gray today as this guy just got wiped out at the start. He went to his knees with Bejarano somehow keeping him up, then got whacked from the inside and was dead last. He somehow made a move turning for home but could only muster enough run to pick up the show dough. No mistakes for him next time out with a clean break. $$$$$

SWIPE/NYQUIST: Finished 1-2 in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile with Nyquist again holding off Swipe at the wire by a half-length, but the exacta somehow paid $191.40 for two bucks with Swipe somehow going off at 29-1. These two could be battling it out all the way to the Kentucky Derby or the connections of Swipe could be looking to start staying away from Nyquist and get a win.

COPPA: 2yo filly had been working powerfully for her debut and ran to the win for fun at 8/5. She looks to be a real up and comer in this 2yo filly division. Look for her to try some stakes company next out.

PIPPAPPY: Was running as a first time gelding in this $20k maiden claimer and just won for fun with lots to spare in the tank. Look for trainer Kristin Mulhall to find a good spot in a starter allowance race next time out and a repeat win.
