NO. 3 SPITFIRE: $35K claimers were going a mile on the grass. Broke slow, was bumped and squeezed off to be last in this field of eight. He made a four-wide late run to dead-heat for the place just a length behind the winner. Big race should have this one set.
NO. 7 RESOLU: First time starter for trainer John Shirreffs was let go at 35/1. This filly really outran her odds in this mile turf race. Was making a nice late run but had to take up off heels nearing the wire or she may have gotten up for third. She is a runner and a must use next out.
