Horses to Watch Alert
Race 8 No. 8 SENTIMENTAL BALLAD: Was in from the recently closed Golden Gate meet for trainer Craig Dollase and she really wanted to run. Was pulling jockey Espinoza out of the saddle, but he took hold while down on the inside mostly due to fear. Got her in tight checking off heels and again on the turn. Steadied her again when in traffic leaving the turn. She rallied again to just miss the place money by a slim neck in what amounted to a real lousy ride.
