RADISH/INTO RISSA: These two fillies exit the same last race, a straight maiden race going down the hill. Radish just missed on the line by a neck at 6-1 with Into Rissa closing late to be right on the line with Radish, just a neck behind her. We would love to see both of these girls come back to meet each other again going down the hill.

SABURAI: This girl ran huge in this $40k claimer going down the hill for trainer Vladimir Cerin. She made a big late run chasing the lone speed 8-5 winner and was gaining on her with every stride down the lane cutting into her five-length lead to lose by a dwindling 1-1/4. With some pace to run at, she wins next out.

COOL GREEN: Was all set to win going down the hill for Team Desormeax, but the race was taken off the grass and run on a wet sealed track. Cool Green ran a big race anyway coming from last to second in a flash and looks set for a win next out on the grass.

BOLD MONGOLIAN: Trainer Enebish Ganbat is usually overlooked in the betting but shouldn’t be, especially when sending runners on the grass. This first-time starter was running in a $30k maiden race and was let go at 18-1 in the betting. He battled tooth and nail on the front end the entire mile distance only to lose by a head while nine lengths clear of the rest. He will be a great single next time out, especially  if moved to the grass.

SATCHEL PAIGE: Those of you who are around my age remember the great pitcher Satchel Paige, if not look him up for a great read. This Satchel Paige was making his first start for Phil D’Amato, he hopped in a slow start to be dead last. He made his move at the top of the lane and closed to be third in a much better-than-looked effort. We would love to see him going a mile next out.
