SHE’S LEGIT: Trainer Peter Miller excels when sending runners down the hill and this filly ran a huge race despite a ton of trouble. She had trouble in her first start also with Espinoza riding and may need a new jock. Give her a huge shot to get the win next out on this course with a clean trip. $$$
SO LONG SAILOR: Talking about trainer Miller and this downhill turf course, he sent this maiden down the hill after going a mile on the grass in his last start, then made this start as a first-time gelding. Kent Desormeaux gave him the perfect ride, winning by a head and paying $31.60. Miller will keep this gelding on this downhill turf course.
HOLY MOSEY: Was in from Turf Paradise for trainer Molly Pearson who can flat out train and this filly somehow got off at 54/1 in this six horse race. She came flying late to miss by 3/4 of a length, paying $27.40 to place. We will be using her again next time out on the grass.
CONQUEST FLATTERME: Just another runner that got overlooked in the betting as this filly got off at 9/1 and ran a winning race only to miss by a head after a five-wide trip. She is in good form and can run any sprint distance.
PRINCE EARL: First timer for trainer Phil D’Amato was let go in the betting, getting off at almost 7/1 in this downhill turf sprint as the betting public somehow made the Mick Ruis runner a 9/5 chalk. Prince Earl blasted home winning by more than three lengths. Can move up and beat winners. $$$
