No. 2 REPS AND WARRANTS: First time starter out of the barn of Doug O’Neill ran a much better than looked third, just missing the place by a half-length at 24/1. He broke slow and was bumped. Jockey Mario Gutierrez sent him down on the inside once in stride to chase the pace. He had no shot at every running down the lone speed, but kept to his task splitting rivals down the lane to be a very game third. $$$
