SO EURO: First time starter for trainer Mike Machowsky just missed by a nostril at 5/1 vs. her stablemate. This filly ran too good to lose. She will be a solid play next time out at this $50K maiden claiming level for fillies and mares 4yo and up.

SHEER FLATTERY: Woke up big time in this 7 furlong sprint for optional $40K claimers as he made a last to third move down the lane, just missing the place money by a dwindling half-length and the win by 1¼. Hollendorfer has him ready to win next out.

CROISSANT: Maiden was going down the hillside turf course and just freaked out in this 11 horse field, drawing away late to win by five lengths. When horses like this course, they usually come back and run big again. He can repeat vs. winners next out.

DALMORE: Won this optional claimer by more than eight lengths vs. some good runners while under a long Kent Desormeaux late hold. He could have won by 10. Up into a stakes race next out for the Brothers “D.”

HARBOUR MASTER: Was sitting perfect into the first turn but had to check off heels and steadied hard, losing two positions. He then swung out, making a five-wide run into the stretch and a strong late run to finish a better-than-looked third. Gets there next time out going long on the grass.

JUSTIFY: Just another Baffert 3yo. This one making his first start going off at 50 cents on the dollar. He blasted this five-horse field by almost 10 lengths. Baffert doesn’t win many turf races but this colt is really bred to love the grass. We would love to see him going a mile on the grass next time out. $$$$$

SIBERIAN IRIS: Was steadied hard off heels into the first turn, losing two positions in this mile turf race. Once clear she ran on big time to finish a fast gaining second. This girl will be a great single next out going long on the grass. $$$

RUN LIKE RHETT: Broke slow and went to the rail. Had to come out for room leaving the second turn and then was angled back in as Nakatani had this guy all over the track. Made a last-to-third run down the lane, but could have been a lot closer.
