LYLE’S ANGEL: Six year old mare was coming off a two month break for her last start, was outrun early on behind sharp splits before closing well to finish fourth at 9-2; follow right back if she returns in a few weeks.

MS. GREEN MONKEY: Two year old filly came out running in her second start, cleared off to the lead and was able to hold on late to score by just a half-length; tab with restricted winners right back.

RICKASHEA: Returned from a December layoff last out and turned back in distance to go 5 and ½ furlongs, got away in fourth before finishing well for second at 2-1; follow with NW2L claimers right back over the lawn.
