No. 7 TANGERINE TICKLE: Filly was coming off the layoff for trainer Kathy Walsh. She broke slow and then shot to the inside to stalk the pace. Battled three deep in midstretch outside the winner till the wire, losing the bob on the line by the smallest of nostrils. No mistakes next time out.
No. 5 COSMIC HEAT: Was a clear winner in this race at 6-1 but the all-knowing stewards took his number down for what they said was interference in late stretch when the third place finisher never got to an opening on time. A questionable takedown to say the least and the winner who was 28-1 just happened to trigger a pick six carryover. I hope the stewards get a little bonus check in the mail for their day light robbery in front of us very unhappy horse bettors who just want a fair shake.
