FRUITFULLY: Was going a mile on the synthetic surface when she had to check hard off heels and then had to wait for room from the five sixteenths to the quarter pole. Once clear, she surged between runners to somehow get up for what was a very game win. She looks like a repeater at this distance on the move up with winners.
WAR CHEST: Was in from Santa Anita and going a mile on the synthetic for trainer Anna Meah, he ran his heart out but had to settle for second behind the other Santa Anita shipper who was exiting the same last race. War Chest looks like he will love going long on the grass and when we see him on the grass we will be ready to fire.
ENGLISH ROYALITY: Looked all the winner in this six-furlong sprint but just got bobbed on the line by the slimmest of nostrils. She was claimed for $25k and could be heading to Santa Anita in the near future. We will be looking for her sprinting on the grass, we hope.
MOMMY ROSE: Just blasted home going wire to wire in this $8k low-level claimer. She was picked up for the $8k by trainer Jack Steiner who is deadly with his runners first off the claim.
LIVE LIKE LARRY: Stanley Hough first-time starter had a wide trip in this mile turf race but continued on with determination in 12-horse field nishing a much better-than-looked fourth, more than three lengths clear of the rest. He will be a player next out going long on the grass.
DING DONG DITCH: Was very keen early and had to be steadied as jockey Javier Castellano had a snug hold on him as he waited for some room to develop. He got through the inside at the top of the lane, had to switch out surging late and just missing by a head as much the best. No mistakes next out, single in the picks.
