No. 6 ESENTEPE: Filly was in from France for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. She was well bet going off as the 3/2 favorite in this very tough field so the connections must think she is a runner. She may need a mile. If so we will be betting next time out.
No. 5 CHICO SUERTE: Really had a goofy trip as he settled nicely between horses on the outside. He then went between horses leaving the backstretch, but had to be steadied hard and taken back on the second turn losing a lot of ground. He came out on the turn and motored six wide to finish a solid second almost three lengths clear of the rest in this 10 horse field. $$$$$
