Horses to Watch Alert
Race 4 No. 1 COMING THRU: Was bumped between horses and bounced around in the early going. Dropped back to last at the half mile pole before his jockey got him to relax. Made a big time five wide run and just did miss the place money by a bob. Look for the maiden breaker in the very near future.
No. 4 TOMMY D’HORSEY: If this maiden doesn’t make it he can always lead one of those buggies with the bugler onto the track for the start of the races. Off his first start, he looks to have some talent. Was bumped hard at the start, then really wanted to run. Pulled himself between horses to get into contention but had no shot at the even money wire-to-wire winner.
Race 7 No. 9 FAVORABLE: Trainer Mike Mitchell is a master at playing poker with claiming animals. He claimed this filly for 50K and brings her back in this 20K maiden claimer. She wins for fun under a hold and a hand ride as there were no claims. Look for him to have her spotted for another win next time out.
