Race 3

No. 5 Magic Lily gets her first start off the John Martin claim and he must like what he bought as he ships this filly in from Golden Gate and puts Bejarano in the irons off a big last work, she will track right behind the hot pace. No. 6 Seeking Shamrocks will also track behind the hot pace and could pop with the right trip. 5-6
