SISTER KATHY: Rated, put in a bid to contend, and weakened when it counted to finish third in her latest by way of IND; solid sort owns record of 4-4-4 from 22 starts.

MEXICAN MISS: Rallied to reach contention in the lane and then finished up evenly for second in her latest; maiden looms interesting $30K-claim from her 10th lifetime start for trainer J. Sharp.

STROLL TO VICTORY: Chased throughout in second when favored off an April-layoff and in with winners for the first time; son of Stroll from K. McPeek barn can get it done next time.

OCEAN BERTIE: Put in wide bid for second in game try most recently, and was claimed for $62,500 by trainer J. Deegan; must follow.

MALIBU HIGH: Rated wide and was in contention, but weakened to fourth in the stretch when back on the main track for his latest; interesting off $25K-claim by trainer G. Trisler (20% wins from limited runners this year).

CURLINO: Went to the post a 1.10-1 favorite for his racing debut, gained wide, and had to settle for third of seven behind easy winner; $375K auction buy is a son of Curlin with upside for solid M. Casse barn.

SLAVA: Got back on form with third-place finish on move back to dirt and cut back to sprint trip for her latest; stay on board now.

SAINT OF SAINTS: Moved back to dirt and responded with dominant score on the front end when in from IND and moved to trainer D. Stewart for his latest; plenty to build on.

LONGSHOT: OL ARMY: Has been in deep of late, but will benefit from his latest sixth-place return from July-break; might surprise the right cast.

 

PENN NATIONAL

RUN PATTY RUN: Moved back to turf off the claim by trainer O. Figgins III for her latest, and responded with pace-setting placing; stay with her.

LAST EMPIRE: Showed more early interest than usual – good sign of sharpness – en route to a fair fifth-place try in his latest; veteran can add value to gimmicks.

BELLA’S REBEL: Turned in fairly even effort for fourth when making her first career attempt on turf most recently; WO invader can do more moving forward.

4*SPECIAL: AIRGEAD: Rallied for third when well bet for just his second start since last-October most recently; primed for next time.
