ADVENTURE: Broke her maiden at 7-1 going 1 and 1/8th miles and this well bred filly may excel with
a switch to the turf.
BOGANGLES: Was bumped at the start, tracked in fourth behind a quick pace, made a wide move on the turn
but had no late kick; tab with lesser.
CATCH MY CAT: Was never too far off a quick early pace and then swept wide to take over and score by three lengths.
Fits nicely with straight three year olds.
DARBY’S CHARM: Made the lead from an outside post and held that advantage into the stretch before getting rundown
late to finish second at 24-1. Can lead a long way at Churchill Downs.
ERHU: Showed good early speed, took on the favorite when the challenge came but had to settle for the place spot; graduation
HEROIC DEED: Ran well in first try on the turf just missing by a neck and should be right there next out over the weeds.
LIFE SAYVER: Was a well beaten fourth last out against $15k claimers and was claimed by the potent Thomas Amoss barn.
Look for a much improved effort next out.
PARTY QUEEN: Closed well from far back to just miss by a neck and a nose and should find the Churchill Downs course to
PISCES: Ran well to finish third last out behind the two favorites in a solid field of turfers, follow closely.
VALIANT STYLE: Closed well to finish third behind the top two choices in the race and can call on backclass to score with
4STARSPECIAL: SKIP POKER: Closed well in the lane to finish within two lengths of the winner but had to come from
well out of it while racing very wide; try again.
LONGSHOT: SENOR AMIGO: Looked like he was going to have a solid career after his first two starts but has tailed off of
late. Look for a turnback in distance and a much better performance.
ARCHIE’S DREAM: Was the only horse in his race to rally from off the pace, getting up for third while just a neck out of
second. Ready to graduate.
BATTLE RED: Popped and stopped and finished third in return from an eight-month layoff. Should wire maiden claimers if
able to benefit from that return effort.
BELEIVE A CAPER: Needed a race after a six-month layoff and ended up fading in the stretch on 4/14. Fits vs. maiden
BLUE CAY: Broke slowly and had too much ground to make up from the back of the pack in a 5 1/2-furlong race. Still finished
just a nose out of third.
BRIGADIER JONES: Broke through the gate before the start on 4/16, and then sprinted up to battle for the lead with a
4-5 favorite in first start off a layoff. Better luck next time.
DUBAI DOLLY: Broke sideways and veered into rivals at the start to lose all chance on 4/18. Don’t ignore back against
FIRST CLASS TRIP: Stumbled badly at the start and lost his best chance on 4/18. Can win with a clean break off the
claim by Aguirre.
GRINDING IT OUT: Bobbled and broke slowly and then rushed up toward the pace set by a wire-to-wire winning 3-5 favorite.
Worth another shot.
JUSTWHATINEEDED: Needed to chase the front-runners after getting off to a slow start and running into some traffic from
off the pace in 4/16. Can improve with a good trip in second race off the layoff.
MINISTER BLAIR: Broke slowly and lost ground while wide around both turns before finishing fourth as a result on 4/16.
SUTTER STREET: Drew the deadly far outside 11 post in a mile turf event and could never get into the race after going
wide on the first turn. Deserves another look.
T.H. APPROVAL: Outran 15-1 odds for third, and would have been second if he didn’t need to check sharply in traffic in
mid-stretch. Should graduate on the lawn at Hollywood.
TAMWEEL: Got hooked in a four-length-gap duel for the lead and held on for third after her early challenger faded to last
in a mile turf race 4/14. Try again.
TEST THE WATERS: Had a troubled trip but still finished mid-pack in return from a two-year layoff. Too early to give
TOP SPINNER: Was too far back off a slow pace and then got boxed-in in the stretch and couldn’t hit the board. Don’t
overlook in next.
TYVARA: Ran seventh at 54-1 odds, but lost the race by just 4 1/2 lengths and had a bad trip. Not the craziest longshot
at huge odds.
4STARSPECIAL: DAMAR WAYNE: Showed good interest both early and late but settled for fourth after some traffic trouble
on the turn cost him the race. Can make amends.
LONGSHOT: KRISMAS: Outran 69-1 odds for fourth, beaten just one length in return from a long layoff. Prepped and ready, and
hopefully still flying under the radar next time.
