UNITED: Was exiting our HTW column and just had a horrible trip in the Grade 2 Charlies Whittingham. He was in tight on the hill and then clipped heels crossing on to the dirt. Jockey Flavien Prat did a great job as he got him to the outside and made a big late run just missing by less than a length.
MASTER RYAN: Maiden first-time starter for trainer Phil D’Amato was going five furlongs, broke slow to lag back and turning for home he made a nice four-wide run, running on nicely to finish third just missing the place by a dwindling half a length and the win by a length. He wants to go longer.
GENERAL MO: Just loved this one on the stretchout, going a mile on the grass getting off at 6-1. As luck would have it he broke slow and was next to last, he blasted home down the lane and was flying late to finishas much better-than-looked fourth. No mistakes next out going long on the grass.
GOOD BYE PUTIN: $50k maiden claimer was going a mile on the grass and just ran huge at 7-1, finishing a clear second behind the chalk who he was gaining on at the end. This guy can run and should be set to get his diploma next out going long on the grass.
GALLOVIE: Was in from Keeneland for trainer Richard Baltas, somehow this filly got off at 24-1. She bobbled at the start and was steadied hard while pulling jockey Drayden Van Dyke hard. She made a wide run down the lane but had to settle for fourth place as the early trouble took its toll. We will give her a big shot next out.
PRETTY POINT: Was in from Woodbine for trainer Paddy Gallagher. This maiden filly just ran huge, losing a three-horse photo on the money, finishing third by a nostril. She is a flat-out runner and will be hard to beat next out going long on the grass.
