NO. 8 UNINVITED: Finally got the maiden breaker after being stuck in second for several races. He finished strong in this 1-1/16 straight maiden race and usually once these long running maidens get their first score they come back to run big again
NO. 1 BOTTLE SERVICE: Steadied between runners after the start, which cost him dearly, and again while four wide entering the turn. He continued four wide and got to the front but the early trouble cost him and he could not hold on. Look for him to clear next out going a mile on the grass and go wire to wire. A solid single next time out.
NO. 11 BIRD ORR BRADY: These four exit the same maiden race and we think it could turn out to be a key one. AMERICAN PASTIME won the race by four lengths and looked very special doing it first out of the box. CASCADE KID finished a solid second first out for Hollendorfer 2½ lengths clear of COLONIST, the stablemate of CASCADE KID. BIRD ORR BRADY finished fourth after breaking from post 10 and showing some moxie in his debut race for Doug O’Neill. We will be using all four when they return. $$$
