ASHEE: Broke slow in her last start and then stalked while down on the rail, she swung out for the drive and made a nice late run to pick up the place. This looks like a very good claim for trainer Mullins who looks to be sitting on a big meet at Del Mar.

LOST PROPHET: Was coming off an 8 month layoff but took plenty of betting action but she broke in the air and to the inside and then was bumped and jostled between horses and lost all shot. This girl was red tagged by trainer Mitchell who will have her ready for the win in her next start at Del Mar and the price just may be a good one. $$$$$

QUINTONS FLASH: Showed big early speed but just could not hold off Rock’n Rule at the wire but he was almost four lengths clear of the third place finisher in this field of 12. This guy was claimed by John Sadler who will recoup most of his 25k next time he sends this one to the gate.

HOGS HOLLOW: It took this guy 15 starts to break his maiden but his connections did not give up on him and kept him going long on the grass with straight maiden company, these types usually come right back and blast home again. $$$$$

DONATO: Was one of two Bob Baffert first time starters in this straight maiden race, his stablemate Z Z Warrior was an easy winner at even money while Donanto was just crushed out of the gate and lost all chance and the jock did not apply pressure and just took hold, this one will be a good bet next time out.

PEDALTOTHEMEDAL: First time starter showed big speed but just did get nostrilized on the line by just another Bob Baffert first time starter, this guy was more than five lengths clear of the rest and looks like a good single next time out. $$$$$

APT TO BE AMAZING/MAJOR SMOKE: Both of these horses were claimed off real nice wins by assistant trainer Leandro Mora, but that is not the key, he claimed them for part owner Dennis O’Neill, the brother of Doug and one of the other owners of Major Smoke is Michael Bello, another big time Doug O’Neill owner, we will watch these two very carefully.

SCORED: Was last seen running at Del Mar in July of ’09, he was well backed in this comeback start and looks set for a winner effort.

WARRENS RUBY: Ran a better than looked race after getting into some trouble when in tight off heels, she kept trying and finished a good fourth.

CAMICORY: Looked good breaking his maiden for 40k going 11/16, and this looks like another good claim by Jeff Mullins.

IZSHELEGAL: First time starter looked like she was thrown to the wolves by trainer Terry Knight as she went off at 20-1 in the 100k Landaluce, she was dead last but put in an eye catching late run and was gaining on the winner with every big stride, WOW, what an effort. This one will be a filly will be a force as the distances get longer. $$$$$
