LITTLE CENTS: $40k maiden was just loaded while stuck down on the inside in this 5½-furlong sprint. He was just sitting waiting for room, the jock swung out and found a hole and Little Cents just blasted through to win at 6-1. We think he can move up and repeat vs winners.
ANNIVERSARY SALE: Would have won this race on most any other day but had to settle for second money while just missing by a half-length while nine-lengths clear of the rest. Look for this maiden to get the win next out and be a very good single.
BE A SHERO: Was last seen back in October of 2018, and was let go at 8-1 in this five furlongs turf sprint with Tyler Baze riding. Tyler looked ready to roll but looked to be stuck down on the inside. In a gutsy move he came through a narrow spot to blast home just missing. This one is ready to win next out, maybe not at 8-1 but we still should get a square price.
LEUCOTHEA: Maiden filly was in from Ellis Park and landed in the barn of Peter Miller. This is a race you really need to watch as the filly ran one of the most spectacular races of the meet for a 2-year-old maiden, male or female, as she just cruised to win by 14 lengths. Look for Miller to have her running in one of the filly stakes races next out after this WOW performance.
BIDDY DUKE: Bob Hess runner was in from Ellis Park and exiting the same race as Leucothea, who she beat at Ellis. Biddy Duke finished a clear second, more than three lengths better than the rest. She will get graduate next out.
TAP BACK: Sometimes it helps to be trackside as the connections of this first-time starter just happened to sit right behind me and some friends at Del Mar. They were dressed to the nines and that is all we needed as Tap Back went wire to wire at 15-1. It pays to pay attention.
