NO. 8 PAULINA’S LOVE: Really never had a shot after failing to break sharp from her far outside post in this mile turf race and being fanned five wide. We will toss this effort and upgrade his chances next time out.
NO. 8 ABBEY VALE: We liked this gelding on our daily horse selections at GamingToday.com. He was coming off the layoff for trainer Phil D’Amato. Steadied between foes in the early going, Abbey came out on the second turn, kicked away late and held to get the win at 7/1. He can repeat.
