Belmont Park



Race #2 – #2 – Carnarsie Kid – 6f on the turf

Beaten chalk who led most of the way. He was caught on the inside when the others made a run and he weakened down the stretch.

Race #3 – #4 – Micozzi – 6 1/2f

Pinched back at the start and was forced wide on the final turn.

Race #5 – #12 – Compromised – 6 1/2f

Beaten favorite who was pinched at the start and forced wide into the final turn.

Race #7 – #5 – Adonis Creek – 6 1/2f

First time starter bumped around at the start for the Kiaran McLaughlin barn.

Race #9 – #4 – Economic Model – 7f

Beaten chalk who was forced wide into the final turn all the while mounting a strong bid.


Churchill Downs



Race #1 – #3 – Chief Know it All – 6f

Bumped, steadied, and blocked. I think this rates as a horrible trip and he still managed a solid 3rd when most would toss in the towel.

Race #2 – #4 – Dawn the Destroyer – 7f

Beaten favorite had to await room until late and made an explosive late run.

Race #3 – #4 – Song of Spring – 1 mile

Loomed boldly and got a little leg weary down the lane for her first time start. – Big improvement is coming very soon !

Race #7 – #5 – Cash In -6f

1st timer who was a beaten chalk. Bumped around like a pinball at the start and had to circle runners to get bested at the wire.
