No. 1 COCONUT CREAM PIE: Was best in this straight maiden race going 1-1/16 on the grass, but had to wait off heels midway on the second turn. Came between foes into the stretch, but had to go back down on the rail where she was steadied hard with no room and in tight. Once through she surged late but lost the bob in what was a super effort. $$$$$
