Race 2 -- #4 Crystal Empire - Expensive Empire Maker filly was being dropped into this 32K maiden claimer so all must not be good. She did run a better than looked race while being blocked down on the rail through the stretch run and would have been no worse than second. Maybe next time if she came out of this race all right.
Race 3 -- #8 Da Heat - First time starter took plenty of action going off 9-5 in a race that the favorite was odds on. Da Heat checked in the opening strides and was wide into the first turn. She just sat until the top of the stretch and exploded down the lane to win going away. It was a great effort for a 32K maiden first-time starter going a mile. $$$$$
