TRUST FUND KITTY: Was going a mile on the grass in this $50k starter allowance race for fillies and mares. She was in tight going into the first turn and had to check losing two positions. She then saved ground on the inside but had to wait when she could not find room. Jockey Abel Cedillo then swung her to the outside and came on with good energy to pick up the place money in what was a big effort.

GOING TO VEGAS: Just loved this 2-year-old maiden going a flat mile on the dirt. As luck would have it he bobbled at the start and really lost his best shot at ever getting to the runaway winner. He ran his own race to blast home for the place while more than seven lengths clear of the rest. This one is sitting on the win next out and will be a solid single going long at this level.

CARPE VINUM: A Phil D’Amato first-time starter looked dead on the board when going off at almost 13-1. This 2-year-old filly ran big in this five-furlong turf sprint ,finishing a good third after getting stuck down on the inside. She could even be a nice play if going longer on the dirt. We will keep an eye open for where she shows up next.

JODIE FASTER: 2-year-old maiden bobbled at the start and then was stuck down on the inside and had to be checked hard off heels in upper stretch in this 5½-furlong sprint. Somehow she angled out for clear sailing in mid-stretch and blasted home to get up for a neck win in what was a big-time effort for a young filly. We say she can repeat and we would love to see her going long.
