NO. 9 MCHEAT: Maiden was getting his first try on the grass and he was bred for the trip. Had a horrible trip after pulling and tugging jockey Nakatani out of the saddle while stuck down on the rail. He then came out into the stretch, but had to be steadied hard when crowded. Just could not recover and finished fourth.


NO. 3 ECKERSLEY: Second time starter for trainer Scott Hansen was stretching out on the grass and responded with a huge win at 11/1, out-battling the Kent Desormeaux runner Blue Law who also ran huge. We will be looking for both to return on the grass.



NO. 1 NAHEM: Broke slow and then looked to launch a winning rally but got caught behind a wall of horses. He finally got out and surged but it was too late.
