NO. 1 FROGGY FRESH: $30k maiden claimer ran a big race last out when finishing a game second behind the odds on winner Natalie’s Wonder who was the speed of the race. Froggy beds down in the hot barn of Philip D’Amato (Mike Mitchell) and looks to be sitting on the win. We will be using as a single next time out at this 30k level.
NO. 6 KATERRIFIC: Maiden filly ran a much better race than her fourth place finish indicates. She was sent early to get to the front but got shuffled back down on the inside. Remained on the rail and was moving up down the lane in a sneaky good effort. We will be all over this filly next time out. $$$
NO. 13 BELLE ET BETE (note this one is stuck on the also list): Irish import making her first start in the States hopped and was bumped at the start. Was dead last in this field of 11 going a flat mile on the grass. She settled inside and looked to be ready to make a move but had to steady off heels in upper stretch. Finally got out for room and finished full of run. $$$
