No. 2 BOOKWORM: First time starter for trainer Bob Baffert just was pulling jockey Mike Smith and got caught down on the inside in a very tight spot having to check. He came out into the stretch and ran on nicely. This race will have him set up perfectly for the win next time out.
No. 2 COCABELLA MYST: Mike Puype first time starter was well backed in this $20k maiden claimer for fillies and mares. She ran a solid third while down on the rail the entire trip. We look for her to come out running in next start at 6 furlongs.
