TAKEIT TO THE LIMIT, a 3-year-old colt, was 5-1 in his career debut and pressed the pace before tiring against tougher. He drops to the bottom of the maiden claiming ranks. Trainer Michael Pender is 22% with maiden claimers and hot riding Kent Desormeaux takes over.

The 3-year-old daughter of Zanjero turned in a huge effort in her return to the races with a second-place finish coming down the hill. Now KRISTINITE stretches out around two turns and has thrown nothing but bullets in the morning since that race for trainer Kristin Mulhall.
