NO. 6 HURRICANE LAKE: In this 1-1/16 race for 20k claimers he was five wide into the turn and continued outside. Was five wide into the stretch but continued to rally just missing the win by less then a length. Will get there next time out with a better trip.
NO. 4 ALFA BIRD: First time starter sped to the early lead, got headed by the 5/2 favorite but battled on till the end only losing by a slim 1/2 length in a very gutty try. If able to clear next time out he will be gone.
