GULFSTREAM PARK

UPUPANDAWAY – Outside post in last hurt her chances while racing five wide. Watch for inside post.

SEARCH FOR BLUE — Had to check on the turn, but still finished strong. A clean trip next time is needed and may be a price.

OFF CAMPUS – Broke slow, had to check at 16 pole and finished well. Contender next time out.

MOOMTAZZ — Had to check early from the rail and angle out going four wide. A play if Bailey stays aboard.

AMERICAN CENTURY — Off very slow to break last. Made a steady run while racing wide to miss by one length. Needs to break well next time.

FRONT COVER DREAM — Raced four wide throughout while breaking from outside and still just missed. Look for a better post.

NOVEMBER SUNSET — Broke slow and ducked in at start. Made five wide rally to gain the place. Better start needed and the price will be right.

AQUEDUCT

MAYVILLE – Lost all chance in last when stumbling at the start. Play this one back and hope for better start.

CARPE DEMON – Broke from the rail and raced well behind the pace. Had to come out wide for the drive and finished strong. He’s fit and ready to win.

MISS NEWTOWN — Got pinched back at start in first outing. Showed good speed while under wraps, made three wide move and just missed. Should graduate next time out.

CRAFTY RUNNER – Broke awkwardly and was outrun early before finding his best stride and finished strong. Bet him back with Bravo.

DOUBLE STAR — Was bothered at the start, but quickly found his best stride while under wraps and drew away. Looks like he had plenty left to repeat.

JUNGLE JUICE — Ask Lou Pena about this one. He lost all chance after stumbling at the start. Play back if Aaron "The Rider" Gryder stays aboard.

SANTA ANITA

DINNER AT THE PALMS — Showed good speed while racing three wide. Gained the lead but was caught late. Get in line because this one is about to graduate.

CALIBAN — Trailed early and made big run late going four wide in the stretch to get the Show Dough. Should be closer to the pace next time for his late kick for the program pick.

TIZZIFIED — Broke out at start but quickly recovered to race three wide early to miss by one. A better start is all she needs.

GO FOR PUDDIN — Stalked the pace from the outside, made a three wide move to gain the lead and was caught late. Look for Flores to take this one wire to wire.

ERIC’S TOY — Broke from outside post and was caught four wide into the first turn. Continued to race outside and made a late game run splitting horses. Look for a better post and see if the pirate stays aboard.

GOLDEN GATE

CLOUDY AND COOL — Ducked out shortly after the start, but quickly recovered to set the pace before weakening in the stretch. The key here is if Baze rides back for his new connections.

TIMELESS TALES — Trailed early and settled in along the rail to the stretch. Made a strong late run while coming out in deep stretch. "Mickey" Martin has this one on edge for a winning performance.

DREAMING IN COLOUR — Was unhurried early before making a four wide bid on the turn and finished evenly. She needs only to be closer early to get the job done.

LAUNCHED IN MAY — This one got tag-teamed by everyone. Was blocked, then steadied around ¼ pole, then again late in the stretch. She has plenty of talent and only needs a clean trip.

BLUE FALCON — Dueled three wide early before giving way. This was a good tightner for Brian Koriner. He could pop at a big price. Beware!
