MIND OUT: 2-year-old maiden filly hesitated at the start and was dead last in this five-furlong turf sprint. She came out for room leaving the turn and just blasted to home to win going away in what was a visual spectacular performance for any horse, let alone a maiden 2yo filly. Up, up and away with this future star. 

MURAD KHAN: Was in from Churchill Downs and was spotted for action in a $32k mile turf claimer. This gelding just crushed this group by more than four lengths. Look for him to move up in class and get a repeat win for his new connections and new trainer John Sadler who knows a good claim when he sees one.

COIL ME HOME: For some reason this gelding dropped back along the inside to be last in this 12-horse field. He saved ground and then came out on the turn in this 6½-furlong sprint and was just motoring home late to be a fast closing fourth. 

ITALIANO: This colt is in top form and fits at around the $40k level. He ran a super game race in this five-furlong turf sprint to gamely hold on for the win at the astonishing price of $32. He was claimed for the $40k by trainer Andrew Lerner who will have him spotted for a repeat win. 

BELIZE: Chased outside hoses in the 1 1/16 turf route for $50k maiden fillies and mares. She looked to be making a winning move when blocked off heels in mid-stretch. She split horses to come on again while down on the inside in what was a much better-than-looked effort.
