No. 1 SOLID WAGER
Looked like just that as the money came rolling in on this guy who was coming off a long layoff for trainer Peter Miller. He had a very tough trip in this downhill turf sprint, coming very wide and having to steady hard past the sixteenth marker. Still had some late run in finishing fourth. He will be ready next time out.
No. 2 HANNA NO SIR
Shot out to take a length lead and would have won on any other day except a super live Peter Miller first time starter got him late. Hanna was a clear second, beating the third place finisher by more than six lengths. No mistake for this filly next time out as she will go wire-to-wire as our single.
No. 5 SCENE QUEEN
Took back in this mile turf race. She shifted out on the bend for room and came strong four wide down the lane. Finished a clear second but had no shot at getting to the runaway winner. This $50K maiden is ready to win if she can find the right pace up front.
