No. 7 TOM’S TRIBUTE: Some of these older riders just have a knack of finding ways not to win. David Flores rode this 3-1 shot who was best in here losing by a neck after getting stuck down on the inside and being steadied hard. No mistakes for this one next time out with a clear trip, but doubt we will get that nice 3-1 price.
No. 5 TAMARANDO: First-time starter was down on the rail trying to run on late. With the speed holding, she could not close the ground in this 5 furlong sprint. This colt looks to be a runner who wants longer. We will play if he gets some extra distance next time out.
