FACTOROFWON: Filly had a real nice work coming into this downhill turf race and had the hot riding Tyler Conner in the irons. She ran big at almost 13/1, flying across the dirt to just miss the place by a dwindling head and the win by a half-length. A mile on the grass could get her home on top next out.

LIGHTNING DOVE: Was in from Kentucky and landed in the barn of Ron Ellis who sent her down the hill for her first try on the West Coast. She responded with a game win at 28/1 with Van Dyke giving her a perfectly timed ride. When horses take to this downhill course they usually come back and run big again. That is what we will be looking for in this filly.

BOURBON SOUL: Just ran a much better than looked 4th in this mile turf race as he looked to be ready to make his move but had to wait off heels in midstretch which cost him. He was swung out for room, surging late to just miss the show dough. Give him a big shot next out at a nice price. $$$

WINNER’S DREAM: Really looked to have a solid shot in this $16K maiden claimer going a mile on the dirt but got in tight and checked off heels past the quarter pole. Got going again to just miss the place money by a nostril and the win by a half-length. Would love to see the bug boy Ceballos on this filly next out of G. Franco.

LOVING LYNDA: Was a filly we liked on our daily horse selections at She was making her first start for D’Amato and got off at 12/1 but another first timer got the best of her. Lynda was a clear second more than three lengths clear of the rest in this 10-horse field.

DESOLATION SOUND: Maiden got off at 28/1 last out going a mile on the grass and ran a winning race but was steadied and shuffled back on the second turn. He came out for room in upper stretch and kicked home splitting horses. Missed the place by a neck and the win by a length and a half. No mistakes next time out with a clear trip. $$$$$
