RYE: Bill Morey runner blasted home from last to first in this 12 horse field to run away and hide at the end. We hope to see this horse come back for one more go around and we think Morey will bring him back in three weeks.
LANGHAM: First time starter for trainer John Sadler ran a huge race coming four wide into the stretch and motoring home to just miss by 3/4 of a length. This one will be a very good single in the picks next time out. $$$$$
CAMMY’S MUSIC: First time starter for trainer Craig Dollase hopped at the start and then came four wide on the turn. He made a nice late run, finishing third just a half-length behind the second place finisher and a length behind the winner. We will see this 2yo in the winner’s circle next time out.
STRAIGHT FIRE: Keith and Kent Desormeaux hooked up with this 2yo colt and he ran his race but had to settle for second behind the odds-on Peter Miller winner. Straight Fire was more than five lengths clear of the rest in this eight horse field and will be one tough colt next time out. $$$
CHAMPAGNE ROOM: Huge 2yo filly was making her first start going five furlongs. She ran a nice race to finish second, and will get better as the distances get longer. We would love to see her next time out going 51/2 or 6 furlongs. If so, we are betting.
NOTED AND QUOTED: First time starter for trainer Bob Baffert broke slow and was dead last in this 10 horse field going five furlongs. Made a nice late run when splitting rivals to get up for fourth and will be a very good play next time out, especially if she goes longer.
ALL THE MARBLES: Ran a winning race but was squeezed off at the start. He settled down on the inside, found an opening along the fence and got the lead but was caught on the line in a big effort.
RINSE AND REPEAT: Maiden was coming off a little layoff but ran like he loved this track, winning by more the two lengths while under a long late hold by Mario Gutierrez, saving a ton of horse for his next start.
BASINCA: Took a tough beat in this 61/2 furlong starter allowance race getting bobbed on the money. He was almost eight lengths clear of the third place finisher and will be a nice single next time out.
