AQUEDUCT

RYAN’S FLAG — Stalked the pace going three wide throughout and still finished gamely for the place. Only needs a better trip.

SOLAR BLUES — Very green in debut. Should benefit from the experience. Deserves another chance.

JACKPOT BLUES — Bumped hard at start, but he quickly recovered to race close to the pace while making three wide move on the turn. Better start needed to graduate.

GOLDEN GATE

CONTINENTAL PEAK — Allowed to settle back early before making a big two wide rally around far turn. Closed late for the place. Now switches to the Sherman Barn.

FELICITY ROSE — Was off very slow, then was allowed to settle back before making a bold three wide move on the turn to finish third. Frank Monteleone now takes over the training duties.

PALE GOLD — Raced inside before swinging three wide at the quarter pole to close with a rush for the place. Duane Offield now owns and trains this filly.

SANTA ANITA

THE STATION — Broke very alertly from the rail, but was caught up in a speed duel throughout before giving way late. Now switches to new connections.

ICICLE ANGEL — Just missed at 30-1 while encountering much trouble from the outset. Bumped hard at the start, had to check hard at the quarter pole. Double-digit dividends are ripe for next time out.

QUIANLONG — Was in tight quarters, squeezed back while breaking from the rail to trail early. Found his best stride to get up for the show dough. Should make amends next time out.
