Race 2 No. 5 DINNR WITH NIKKI C: Just did miss by a nostril in her last start. Looks to be sitting on a win. She was claimed out of this race by trainer Frank Lucarelli. Can pop first off the claim and looks to be a good one. Nice single next time out.
Race 7 No. 4 MERITRICIOUS: First time starter ran a winning race except that he could not stave off the odds-on Russell Baze winner. Will be a good single next time out.
Race 8 No. 2 DUKE OF DOOM: Was in from Gulfstream Park and landed in the barn of Bill Morey. Sent off at .50 cents on the dollar with Russell Baze riding. The bettors must have been a little nervous as he looked beat, but dropped down to the inside and somehow got the bob on the line. This was a big effort for the Duke Of Doom, who just may come back and repeat.
