Horses To Watch Alert
OUR MERV: Was in from over the pond and trainer Mike Mitchell looked to have him set for a big race. Was ready, but broke slow and then was steadied hard when pulling Talamo out of the saddle. Found his best stride late and just came flying. He looks to be a real runner and Mr. Mike just may send him a flat mile next time out. If so, we will dig deep and take a little plunge. $$$$$
No. 1 MY JOYCIE: Comebacker was bumped at the start and took back to last. She started to make her rally, but got fanned five wide and somehow freaked. Then she surged to the front with a powerful burst of speed to win with ease under a snug hold on the line by jockey Brice Blanc. This filly woke up big time on the dirt and could come right back at another big price and win.
