No.2 CONGREGATIONALIST: Was making his second start off the layoff and really ran a winning race at 24-1 when battling tooth and nail with the 6-5 chalk. After the winner drew away down the lane he came back and was gaining at the end with every stride. Lost by ¾ of a length in what was a big time effort. $$$
No.4 SOUTH FLOYD: First time starter ran a very professional race in winning at first asking for trainer Mora. He was under a slight hand ride late in winning by four lengths. It could have been more as he had a lot left in the tank. Will be able to move up and beat winners.
No.10 LADY TEN: The filly looks like the future big gun in the Baffert barn for the BC filly division. This was an amazing win in the Sandy Blue Handicap battling tooth and nail the entire mile distance getting passed and fighting back to get the win, she is big time. $$$$$
