NO. 8 MOR SPIRIT: First time starter for trainer Bob Baffert came into this highly touted and was sent off in this very tough field at 9/5. He was crowded and checked off heels in the opening strides and that cost him. Was rushed up to get the lead but just could not hold off the winner, but finished more than three lengths clear of the rest. Will be a solid single next time out and if he meets any of the other runners coming out of this race we will be using in exotics. $$$$$


NO. 7 WHAT A TWIST: Was in from Churchill downs and won this mile turf going away in a big effort for $25k claimers. She was claimed by Phil D’Amato who will have her spotted for a repeat win. $$$


NO. 12 BUYMEABOND (stuck on the also list): Had the cozy rail in this mile turf race but the old Nakatani wanted nothing of the inside as he swung out into the stretch making a last to fourth move, flying late. This one needs plenty of early pace and a better trip to get the job done. We will be looking for that next out.


NO. 5 GEISTREITER: First time starter for trainer Tim Yakteen ran a big race finishing fourth while just missing the show dough after a slow start. She was more than eight lengths clear of the rest in this 10 horse field. Fits at this $20k level.
