Race 2 -- #1 Hovig - Was last seen in September 2008 at Delaware Park against the likes of Friesan Fire. Now he’s here in the Mike Mitchell barn. This was a very tough bunch of straight maidens going 6 furlongs on the grass. Hovig showed good speed, but just got tired in the last furlong and finished fourth. If he shows back on the main he could go wire-to-wire. $$$$$

Race 5 -- #3 Captain Steel - Bobbled at the start and had no shot after that as this front runner was dead last. Did make some ground up late under his own power and finished fifth behind the up and coming Canonize.
