ARTIC ROLL: Just ran her race but could not hold off the odds on winner, she was six lengths clear of the rest and will be ready for the win going long at Santa Anita for trainer Andrew Lerner who is looking to have a big meet. 

APPLECROSS: Was making her first start in the States for trainer Richard Baltas who always points his stable to this meet. Applecross was very eager to run in the Del Mar Juvenile turf stakes and was pulling jockey Florent Geroux hard. She was down on the inside and turning for home made a nice four-wide run to be a clear third in what was a big effort.

BE A SHERO: This filly is back on our list of runners ready to win. She had a tough trip in this five-furlong sprint and looks to want to run longer. If she gets to go down the hill at Santa Anita, she will love that distance. Even a flat mile on the grass would fit her style. 

DOUBLE TOUCH: Exits a better-than-looked effort in this $40k optional claimer at a mile on the grass. We love that trainer John Sadler claimed him out of this race for the $40k. He will be looking for a quick return on the investment next out going long on the grass. 

MEDIA BLITZ: Just ran a winning race first out of the box for trainer Simon Callaghan, after breaking slow in this mile turf race. He moved up to stalk the pace, he then made a four-wide move on the second turn and just missed the head bob. We will see him in the winner’s circle next out going long on the grass.
