Horses to Watch Alert
Race 3 No. 3 CHINESE PRAISE: Was trying the grass for the first time and ran ok despite a ton of trouble. May like the main. If switched back in his next start we will be betting.
No. 8 SMASH: Was one of two comebackers in this race. The winner Coil was the other who got the jump on Smash down the lane. Got in tight and had to take up into the turn. Finished a clear second some nine lengths better than the rest. Will be a solid single next time out.
Race 4 No. 1 CHK CHK BOOM: Peter Miller comebacker got bet like a good thing. Showed good early speed and battled it out until midstretch. Tired late and had to settle for the show dough. A good effort off the layoff.
Race 5 No. 4 MARRYMEONEMORETIME: Was going 6 furlongs in this 25k claimer for 3-year-olds and up. Got into a good stalking position and looked like he was going to make his move when behind the winner in midstretch. Never made it, but held for the show dough. Claimed by Mike Mitchell for the 25k. May see Mike send him long.
Race 6 No. 1 SURFER DAVE: Needed this race off the layoff. Will be set for his best next time out going long on the grass. $$$
