NO. 2 TIZ JOLIE: Got off at 9/1 for trainer Bill Spawr. Was stalking along the inside when he got crowded behind the eventual winner in midstretch. Was then carried out but still kept going and was closing the gap at the end, losing by a dwindling half a length. $$$$$
NO. 1 WATDIFRENZDZITMAKE: Was coming off the layoff for trainer D’Amato. Ran a big race despite being bumped and pushed out in upper stretch. She just missed the place by a dwindling nostril and the win by a length. We will be singling next time out. $$$$$
