No. 1 WABEL: First time starter for Bob Baffert finished second when beating Iancol last time out. He has big early speed. Look for him to clear early next time out and play catch me if you can. If Iancol and Wabel meet, we will be going big on the exacta and trifecta. $$$
No. 6 IANCOL: First time starter for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer came into this with some real nice works. He ran fairly well but even. Look for him to blast away from the gate next out and find the winner’s circle. $$$
No. 2 CRUX: Really wanted to be let loose in this mile turf race as he was pulling jockey Van Dyke out of his irons. He stalked the front runner from the bell and surged late but just missed by a dwindling head. We will be singling next time out. $$$
