NO. 6 SUPREME GIANT: Was steadied when squeezed off at the start and that cost this one his best shot. He saved ground but had to be steadied again off heels in upper stretch when making a late run. Angled in for room and still came on to pick up the show dough. Look for this one in the winner’s circle next time out with a clean trip at this $32k maiden claiming level going long.
NO. 2 POINT PIPER: Finished second, way back and in another galaxy, behind the great California Chrome in the Winter Challenge at Los Alamitos TB, a race that was designed to give the Chrome a prep before his big one next month. This was a great money maker for all 10 runners in here as it was set up that 6th thru 10th each got $10k. The winner got $50k, second $30k, 3rd $20k, 4th and 5th $15k, so why not run
