No. 5 CAFFEINE HIGH: Had been away since last May when winning at Hollywood Park. He came back in top condition for this optional claiming race for trainer Ron Ellis but had no shot at running down the 7-5 chalk. Was a clear second and will be very hard to beat at these same conditions next time out.
No. 10 BABY BLAKE: Was coming off a little layoff and showed high speed at 9-1 odds. He kicked clear down the lane, but could not hold off the 8-5 chalk. Still, finished well clear of the rest.
