No. 4 TAKE A RISK: This $20k maiden claimer put in a real nice effort in this 7 furlong race, but came up a ½ length short. May have been best but had to make a four-wide run, losing a position coming for home that cost him the win. He still finished well and looks to be sitting on the maiden breaker.
No. 5 SCOOTER BIRD: Was exiting our HTW list and let go at almost 13/1. She broke slow as our luck would have it and got squeezed back to last. Way back and hopelessly beaten at the top of the lane, she made a last to third place eye-popping, four-wide run. We will keep her on our list of ones that are ready to win.
No. 7 FELINE FORUM: You just gotta love these Florida invaders as they come here and run their eyeballs out. That is what this filly did in this mile turf route at 5/1 as she made a big four wide run into the stretch and came home with confidence to draw away late. She looks to like it here and can repeat.
