No. 3 IRON JOE T: Dropper was sent off as the 7/5 favorite in this 20k maiden claimer. He stumbled badly at the start when the ground broke out behind him to be dead last. Moved up on the rail, but got in tight checking off heels just past the turn. Came out for some running room but had little left to make an impact. Settled for a very troubled fourth in this 11 horse field.

No. 4 MAYBETUESDAY: Santa Anita invader sat back off the pace until the second turn when he looked ready to roll. Was blocked and steadied hard from the five sixteenths to just inside the quarter. Made a furious late run exploding down the lane, but had too much ground to make up. Lost by ¾ of a length just flying by the winner past the finish line. Tuesday was much the best in this race and will be a good single next time out. $$$$$
