Race Note: Was 5-2 ML. Bet well. Winner was a 2nd time starter shows improved speed and wins easy.
Trip Note: Away OK. Clean. Was 4W on a 4 across duel into the turn. Dueled throughout and a clear shot at every pole. Simply outrun by another dueler that was in BTW and head to head with this one early. I’ll be looking for one of the first time starters.
E Z for You to Say
Race Note: Was 12-1 ML. Coming out of the same race as Beyond Brown. Winner of this race came back to get beat a nose in the Stillwater Stakes as a 1-5* favorite. Place horse hasn’t run back. 3rd place finisher was 1-1* and won by 6 lengths in second start against same class. Looks like very live heat.
Trip Note: Was away OK and then horse outside of this one pushed her into the rail horse which was the best breaker and ¾ ahead of this one. Was forced to steady a bit. To rail in turn and foe 1 length ahead of this one and on her outside. Not an ideal spot. Nudged along to get past this foe but wasn’t really able. Even lane and gallop out. She gets a pass based on the start alone but don’t believe she is nearly as good as Beyond Brown.
Race Note: Was 10-1 ML. Coming out of the same race as E Z for You to Say. Winner of this race came back to get beat a nose in the Stillwater Stakes as a 1-5* favorite. Place horse hasn’t run back. 3rd place finisher was 1-1* and won by 6 lengths in second start against same class. Looks like very live heat.
Trip Note: Away about ½ to 1 length slow. 4W into far turn. No real ask early in the turn but running well. Moved around 2 foes to her inside while 3-4W in the turn. Changed leads extremely early (midway in the far turn). Easing back to the rail late in the turn, this one finally asked hard and set down at the top of the stretch. Big stretch kick despite no gain on the PP’s & almost caught the third place finisher. Remarkably galloped out past the winner who is a MONSTER. Wow! Really like this one with added ground.
