No.4 REAL HOUSEWIFE: Was coming off a layoff and made a big wide run but had too much ground to make up. Had to settle for mid-pack. Was claimed by trainer Doug O’Neill so look for a good spot next time out and a quick return on his 16k investment.
No.1 SAY OW: Was going long for the first time, but was forced wide into the first turn and that cost him. He then had to come four wide into the stretch, but finished like a winner coming up a half-length short in a race he may have been best.
No.8 HARD BUNS ( turf only): Ran a much better than looked fourth going down the hill last time out. She is in good form and could strike at a price in the very near future for trainer Tim Yakteen.
No.6 MYSTICAL MARK: Looked to have a big shot in this six furlong starter allowance sprint but ran up behind a wall of horses. When he looked to be making a winning move was checked hard and had to shift out. Came home strong late but was too late, just missing the place by a nostril. $$$
