Race  #3 – #6 – Going Strong – 1 1/16 on the dirt

Corey Lanerie settle his colt out nicely and tracked from the back of the pack. Once he was given the cue, he picked up the bit in a big way rallying on to be a solid 2nd this day. This was a very nice effort to build on for the future.

Race#8 – #8 – Petov – 6f on the dirt

Jack Gilligan for Ron Moquette and they sat just off the speed and and pounced at the top of the lane. He was an impressive winner on this day and could be ripe for a playback at a solid price moving up the ladder.

Del Mar

Fernando Perez in the irons for Doug O’Neill and this filly by Broken Vow  was in tight leaving the starting gate. She settled down the backstretch and rallied on for a very game second place finish.

Race  #1 – #7 – Barry Swings – 6f

Chris Landeros had this son of Harlan’s Holiday in the cat bird set and got rolling late a round the far turn. He needed about 50 feet more and was lights out for the win. He’ll benefit greatly from this race and be a tough customer next time out.
