Race #2 – M.C $50,000 – 1 1/16 – #2 – Lil Miss Blueeyes
#2 – Lil Miss Blueyes = Filly by Ice Box for the barn of Kenny McPeek has the services of Robby Albarado. She was making her second start off a three-month layoff and was a beaten favorite last out. The barn comes back to score 22% off this angle and she was eligible to move up making her second off a freshening. She was making a solid bid and was blocked badly at the 3/16th’s and never had a clear path. She’ll benefit from this race and come back and show better.
Race #7 – Allowance – 1 mile on the turf – #1 – Mongolian Greywolf
#1 – Mongolian Greywolf = Mitchell Murrill in the saddle and was exiting a solid effort at Kentucky Downs. This son of Paddy O’ Prado had been showing early speed and was under heavy restraint during the race forced to take off heels against the rail. Once he found clear sailing he managed a show effort this day.
Race #5 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 mile on the turf – #9 – Analyze It
#9 – Analyze It = 1st time starter by Point of Entry for Chad Brown. Irad Ortiz was in the saddle and he was ultra-impressive in victory. He won by 6 1/4 and is regally bred to relish the turf. – Keep your eye on this Chad Brown runner.
Race #6 – Mdn Sp Wt – 6f on the turf – #5 – Tap Tap Taparoo
#5 – Tap Tap Taparoo = Filly is a 1st timer by Tapit. – Irad Ortiz for Rudy Rodriguez and she has a solid work clip. Her sharp works would catch your eye on paper, and watching her break dead last going 6f on the turf had me thinking about next time out. That was until she started moving at the 3/8th’s and 4 wide into the stretch rolling very quickly. She settled to be a bridesmaid but she’ll walk the aisle very soon.
Race #5 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 mile on the main – #13 – Classy Act
#13 – Classy Act = She drew in off the AE list and was a beaten favorite her last two for the Bret Calhoun barn. – She was blocked badly two back for her initial effort at CD and was getting the outside post this day. – She broke game on the far outside and settled out nicely. During the race, she made a couple of moves to zero in the leaders and try to find her best stride. The outside post may have not been to her liking and next out could be graduation day.
