NO. 9 KRISTO: Ran a winning race when finishing second behind the wire-to-wire winner on this speed-favoring track. He surged late, but just failed to get up by a half-length. Ready to win next time out.
NO. 7 UNDERHILL DRIVE: Looked to have a big shot in this spot off some real nice works, but she hopped and had to be steadied at the start and that cost her several lengths. She moved up between horses but got in tight midway on the turn and had to come out four wide into the stretch. Came on strong, but had to settle for the show dough, just missing the place by a half-length and the win by a length. No mistakes next time out on the dirt. $$$$$
NO. 7 POWER PED: Tweeted this one out at sabesbets on Twitter as he looked very live off of his last work and went off at better than 8/1. Ran his race, but came up a half-length short of the win, finishing second and paying $8 to place. Sitting on the win – we will be on him.
