DEVIL MADE ME DOIT: If Wynn still took Kentucky Derby future book wagers, the bettors would have been rushing to the windows to take a shot with this 2-year-old colt after just blasting home by more than nine lengths when bet down to the 3-2 chalk for trainer Doug O’Neill who knows how to get a runner ready for the Triple Crown races, Look for this colt to be moved right in with stakes runners next out.
TROMADOR: Was going a mile on the grass and took plenty of action on the tote board in this $62,500 maiden claimer, he showed good early speed as he dueled between runners. He fought it out with the top two finishers but had to settle for the show dough, just missing the place by a half length. If he can clear early next out he will go wire to wire going long on the grass for trainer Brian Koriner.
TINY TINA: Filly just ran way too good in the Robert J. Frankel going 1 1/8 on the grass to lose this race on the money by the shortest of noses after she bobbled at the start. This was a great effort by this gutty consistent filly.
BARRISTAN THE BOLD: Was making his first start in the states for trainer Mark Glatt and was totally overlooked in the wagering in the $200k Mathis Brothers turf mile. He was dead last in this 11-horse field but sat back and made a four-wide run into the stretch and surged home late to just miss the show by a dwindling three-quarters of a length. This guy can flat out run.
