ENEMY RUNNER: John Sadler-trained maiden comes off a much better-than-looked effort in a $100k maiden claimer for 2-year-olds. He stumbled badly at the start and was basically eliminated. He then pulled his way along the inside as he really wanted to run. Jockey Victor Espinoza moved him to the outside and made a nice three-wide run, finishing fourth, some five lengths better than the rest. We will be on this one next time out and the price will be right.

LADY TIMMY HO: Irish import for trainer Richard Baltas was going a mile on the grass in this straight maiden race for 2-year-old fillies. It was her first start in the States but she broke dead last in this 11 horse field. She was let loose by jockey Drayden Van Dyke on the second turn making a big three-wide move and motored home to get the show dough. With this race under her belt she will be hard to beat going a mile or longer on the grass next time out. She has single written all over her.

SPECIAL DAY: Jerry Hollendorfer maiden just really wanted to run. He fell into a good stalking position in this mile turf race for 2-year-olds, looked ready to make a winning move but had to be steadied hard off heels in upper stretch. He was switched out for room past midstretch and blasted home to miss the place money by a dwindling neck and the win by a half length as Hollendorfer continues his bad luck.

MURAD KHAN: Comes off a real hard-fought win vs. some good allowance turf runners, winning by a neck in what was a very game effort. We always take notice when Peter Miller claims a high price turf runner and he plucked this one for $40k. Look for Miller to have him spotted for a repeat win next out before the meet ends.
