Race 1:

1st: (7) SANDLOT SAM – Raced evenly in a long sprint two starts back then came back at two turns and Erin Walker opened up a huge lead before being run down going two turns. She will probably try to employ the same tactics today and she wins 9% going long.

2nd: (6) VINNY BOY – Raced evenly at long odds in his first two career starts going short then stretched out to two turns and showed good speed before weakening. Son of REVOLVING is out of a dam by UNTUTTABLE that is a half-sister to two stakes winners.
