FAST MASTER: First time starter for trainer Bob Baffert was hammered down to the 6-5 chalk. He was reluctant to load, but once in settled nicely and broke sharp. Gained a slim advantage down the lane but inched away late while under a tight hold by jockey Gomez. This gelding will go long.

EL VINO: Was last seen running up the track here last March. He settled in the back of the pack, swung very wide into the lane and just came flying home to lose by less than a length at 15-1. If sent longer in his next start we will take our shot.

LIFT OUR LUCK: Just failed to run down the lone speed in here but was more than six lengths clear of third. This filly is in top form for trainer Jeff Mullins and is a must use in the exotics in her next start.

BELLA ROSA: Was exiting our HTW list in this 6½ furlong downhill sprint. She tossed her head, hopped and then steadied at the start to be off last. Far back, she made a nice late run picking up the show dough losing by 1½ lengths. She was claimed out of this effort by trainer Craig Lewis for 40K. That will keep her on the list.

ELLE DEHERE: First time starter had been working back East. She showed up in this 20K maiden claimer for trainer Eric Guillot with the low profile K John in the irons and won going away despite trouble. This girl could be spotted for a repeat win next time out.

DREAMY KID: Just loved the Kid in this race at 7-2 but he just could not run down the lone runaway speed. If he finds some pace to run at next time out he will win. $$$$$

CARDIFF GIANT: Look out price players! Jockey Chantel Sutherland is back in town and she can flat out ride. Just did fail to win with Cardiff Giant at 8-1 despite him bobbling and getting bumped hard at the start. Next time she will get him home on top.

HOT DAMON: Was coming off a layoff and was dead last at the half mile pole. Looked beat but made a furious late run to win going away. Look for him to come back and repeat.


ADRIATIC PRINC: Cased the lone speed from the start but just could not get to him. Still was nine lengths clear of the third place finisher and will be a good single next time out.

DIABLO RUN: 8k maiden was being stretched out for this his second lifetime start. Was our selection on this website of the late Pick 4 and let go at almost 20-1. He sat back in a very cagey ride by the hot J Couton. Swung out for the drive finishing steadily to win, keying our $1 Pick 4 paying $1,990!

PERFECT CHOICE: Just could not run down the lone speed in here. Winner opened up some eight lengths on the field but PC closing with every stride late. All she needs is some pace to run at next time out to get the win.

FIRE BREAK: Also could not run down the lone speed. Just failed to get up, losing by a half length. Next time out for new connections he will get the job done.

MO STEAM: Deep closer is in top form and a must use in the exotics. Always seems to go off at a nice price. He will be right there next time out once again. $$$
