Race #4 – #8 – Plein Air – 1 mile on the turf
Joel Rosario in the irons for Michael Matz. 1st time lasix for this daughter of Lonhro and Matz wins 18% on this change. She showed speed her first two efforts, and rated nicely to make a bold bid in the final 1/8th. Graduation day is coming soon.
Race #1 – Mdn Sp Wt – #7 – Clear Convincing – 1 1/16
Irad Ortiz in the saddle for Chad Brown winning (24%). 2nd time start for the son of Giant’s Causeway, and his first race was against the one-eyed wonder Patch at Gulfstream. He was closing at the end and was bet heavy at the windows. He was rolling and hooked a “monster” in eventual winner The Big Fundemental winning by 8 1/2 lengths. This colt should get better with time.
Race #4 – #6 – Wonder Meister – 1 1/16 on the turf
Irad Ortiz in the driver’s seat and this son of Bodemeister was trying the turf for the first time. His dam Wonderously has 7 starters, 6 winners, and 3 turf winners. He made a mile late kick and finishing fourth with a very strong rider change going to post.
Race #5 – #4 – Mills – 1 mile
Jose Ortiz in the saddle for Jeremiah Englehart. Dropping in class and shipping over from Aqueduct. He came in 3/4 ITM at “Big Sandy” and was pinched back at the start. Add in being a beaten favorite this day and that 6 wide cirling move looks better and better.
Race #3 – Claiming – #7 -Bingo Kitten – 1 1/16 on the turf
Julien Leparoux in the irons Mike Maker and they came in 2nd off the layoff from Gulfstream. He was a beaten favorite this day circling the field with six wide move.
Race #9 – #5 -Classic Cotton / #1 – Syndergaard – 6f
Ricardo Santana in the saddle and he shot out quickly for the lead. He opened up and shifted into the 4 path and impeaded the #1 – Syndergaard. – The #1 was ridden by John Velasquez for Todd Pletcher and he was sent off the odds-on favorite. He was impeaded and you can toss this race for him, and use Classic Cotton.
