We get maiden 2yo going 4½ furlongs. No. 2 Willie B Awesome had a tough trip in his first start and will go better this time around. No. 4 Randino is out of the dam Selborne who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters including a stakes winner. No. 5 Raise the Hoof was bet like a sure thing in his first start but ran an even fourth. 2-4-5
If No. 4 Scat Patty can clear early she will be tough to run down. No. 3 Musical Arts will be the one coming with a late run off the long layoff. 3-4
First time starter No. 2 Jet Warrior has been working like a real runner for Hollendorfer with not much in here to bet. 2
Win and place 2
No. 3 Smooth Talker gets Gomez and looks all the winner today. 3
They go 1½ on the grass. No. 1 Warrant ran okay last time going 1¼ on the grass and his speed will play well in this race. No. 6 Father of Science has a marathon runner over the pond where he won a 1-5/16 turf route. He gets second time Lasix, blinkers and some interesting works. 1-6
No. 3 Penny Maker ran a good second at this level and distance last time out and No. 10 Solid South finished 3rd right behind him, they could be one two today. 3-10
In this 6 furlong turf sprint No. 1 Creditcardroulette has hit the board in all three of her starts here at this turf distance. No. 4 Best Present Ever was .70 cents on the dollar versus Creditcard last time out finishing 3rd 1¾ length behind. 1-4
The hot Jeff Mullins sends out the speedy No. 6 Aqua Fever with Tyler Baze gunning from the bell but he will need to deal with the speedy dropper No. 9 Big Note and No. 10 Blake. These 3 could separate from the others or No. 7 Music Appeal could be flying at the end and run them all down at a big price. 6-7-9-10
No. 1 Reigning Rubies could pop from off the pace at a price. 1

No. 2 The Director may have found a home here. No. 4 Hot Option gets off the grass and back to a spint, he will be coming with a late run. No. 5 El Gran Matador sneaks in from Los Al and could be dangerous.
