BIG BAD JOHN: Bruce Headley first time starter took a little action in this 5½ furlong sprint. He had no shot at the runaway winner but battled in his own right just missing the show dough by a nostril after a tough trip. Six furlongs looks to be his game.

LORD OF CHAOS/WARD’N JERRY/BURNIE’S ON BOARD: These three were exiting the same race with Chaos winning as the 7/5 chalk. Jerry finished second just a half-length behind the winner at 13/1 with Burnie’s third at 28/1. The trifecta paid $503 for a one dollar bet. They will be very tough to beat next out going long on the grass.

ITSINTHEPOST: Just don’t know what Tyler Baze was thinking in this mile turf race as he got Post stuck down on the inside. He had to wait off heels leaving the turn and never tried to get out. Still, down on the inside he had to be steadied while Tyler, standing straight up in the saddle, was holding him as tight as he could. Once clear, finished fast for fourth in a race he may have been best. $$$

WHISTLE PRETTY: First time starter by War Chant was being sent 1-1/16 on the grass. He ran a much better-than-looked third after breaking slow and checking off heels when caught between horses on the second turn. He angled out and came home strong to pick up the show money. Look for this filly in the winner’s circle next time out going long on the grass. $$$$$

SPITFIRE: $40k maiden showed how much he loved the ocean air and this track by blasting home, coming from last to first in an eye-popping move. We would love to see him come back before meet’s end in a starter race going long.

BOURQUE: Was being sent long on the grass in this his third start for trainer Doug O’Neill. He had some nice works for this but only could muster a fourth place finish. This 2yo colt is much better than his last and will pop very soon.
