CAMPANITA: Flashed early speed and stayed on to finish third of nine in maiden special weight turf race on
Nov. 17; willing filly graduates shortly.
CHESS PLAY: Battled with pace players, in a race ultimately decided by late movers, and held to finish a respectable
fourth; 2-year-old filly prospect for trainer Pearson.
EAST VALI: Chased throughout and gamely won battle for second in race won by foe who led in clear fashion the
entire race; better set-up gets him in winner’s circle.
FANZOCA: Rallied to win latest dirt sprint over good ground, running down a clear, odds-on leader; consider on
GENERAL BILTMORE: Chased and faded in latest turf try; staying with Rollins trainee, quite simply because we
like his running style.
GRAPHIC AVENUE: Pressed the pace and gave way in latest, but his early speed should not be overlooked in
similar claiming sprints.
MAXIMUM EXPOSURE: Veered in at the gap but made some progress late to finish fourth over muddy ground in
race controlled by blowout winner; stay on board.
MY CUPID: Finished a clear second when odds-on for 2-year-old futurity trial; staying with juvenile who showed good early speed
STRAWBERRYFIELDS: Finished fourth at odds-on when going evenly in maiden claiming sprint; interesting $5K-claim by
trainer Pearson is worth at least one shot.
4STARSPECIAL: STRAWBERRY ICE: Chased throughout, but settled for a clear third when unable to get to
top pair that got valued first run; expect more speed – early and throughout next time.
LONGSHOT: THINKABOUT ELVIS: Broke eighth from post 10 of 10 but rallied for third over wet ground in
race controlled throughout by top two finishers; sharp right now.
BOLD ARIES: Consistent gelding always shows up for work. Tab in a similar spot
next time out.
CHESTER STREET: Broke maiden for a tag, then pressed the pace and faded to seventh in a starter
allowance last time. Fits best with claimers.
FIRST DRAFT: Just keeps on turning in solid efforts on the turf, including a second-place finish at Golden
Gate Nov. 16. Chestnut filly is steady money.
HERE COMES BABY: Returned off a long layoff and didn’t miss a beat. Jumped out to the lead, set fast fractions
of :21 4/5, :44 3/5 and 56 3/5 and ran away to a three-length victory. Right back versus winners.
LUCKY LAREDO: Didn’t run that bad last time considering he was making his first start since January. Give him another
shot second start off the layoff.
LUKE’S FINEST: Beaten chalk in her bow deserves another chance for top barn. Moves forward off the second-place
PHOTO FOR SHOW: Her record went to 0-for-17 with a third-place finish last time, but that doesn’t mean throw her
out completely. Toss in your gimmicks; gets a piece of it.
PIC OF THE WEEK: Broke her maiden at first asking versus $12.5k maiden claimers, then just missed against $12.5k taggers
second time around. Gets her picture taken.
ROADS WEST: Elusive Quality gelding had some tough luck in his debut, but still ran third after getting bumped and
impeded at the start. Gets another chance.
STAR WIZARD: Hollendorfer filly only has one win out of seven starts, but is consistently in the mix. Might get
overlooked on the win end.
TOMORROW’S AFFAIR: Pressed a fast pace in her latest outing and faded to seventh as a result. Shakes loose
TONYRONY: Son of Marquetry is consistent as they come. Tab this steady check collector going any distance.
4STARSPECIAL: LONG MAY SHE RUN: Was claimed out of her debut May 25 and didn’t return until wiring a field of
maiden claimers Nov. 16. Ready for the next level.
LONGSHOT: CALL COLUMBO: Improved a ton at 54-1 while finishing third when dropped in for $16k. Won’t get that price
again, but will still make it worth your time.
