COASTLINE: Was in from Keeneland and making his first start for Phil D’Amato. He was sent down the hill, made a huge six wide run splitting horses on the line and just missed by a neck at 52/1 to his stablemate who was 21/1. Nice score for D’Amato. We will look for this colt next time out going down the hill again. No 50/1 but a trip to the winner’s circle.

MR. COKER: A Jerry Hollendorfer first time starter had no shot against the freakish winner in here but this 2yo colt ran super to be second almost 11 lengths clear of the third place finisher in this field of 12. No mistakes for this guy next time out as he will be a solid single. $$$$$

BELVOIR BAY: Was in from Belmont Park where she was under the care of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott. She landed here in the barn of Peter Miller and was getting first time Lasix. She freaked, winning for fun in the Blue North by more than seven lengths. Lots of upside with this filly. $$$

HOFFENHEIM: Was getting the stretchout by Baffert in this his second start. Made a real quick four wide move leaving the second turn and looked all the winner but got caught late by a horse exiting the same race and also stretched out in his third start by the name of FRENCH GETAWAY who had a lot left in the tank. We will put both on our list to win next out.

GUNS LOADED: Was exiting our HTW list and getting his second start as a gelding. He blasted home in this downhill turf sprint to win going away by more than three lengths, paying $17 for our followers. Will be on him right back. We see him going on a little win streak. $$$

YOU KNOW I KNOW: Was last in this field of 11 going down the hill but made a nice late run to pick up the show dough. He was claimed by the super New York trainer David Jacobson who will have him spotted for the win next time out. $$$$$

TRUE BRILLIANCE: Was coming off the layoff for trainer Diodoro who had him ready. Took plenty of action and had to settle for second money but was almost four lengths clear of the rest. He will get the maiden breaker next time out.
