This Aussie import is running her third race off the layoff, a move trainer Phil D’Amato is 28% with. She gets some class relief and gets a jock switch to Rafael Bejarano, who is 34% with D’Amato.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. #3 Sir Samson (5-1), 2. Guns Loaded, 3. Distinctive B. LONG SHOT: Look Twice.

This 3-year-old is returning from a 6-month layoff but look who he was losing to earlier this tear: Dortmund, Prospect Park, Bolo, Lord Nelson and Texas Red. Arguably he ran his best race on this track finishing third in the San Vicente. If trainer Brian Koriner has him ready look out. Jockey Rafael Bejarano takes the mount.

NINTH RACE: 1. #6 Alfeet Domination (5-2) BEST BET, 2. Sugar Buzz, 3. Nusret. LONG SHOT: Storm Quest.

Trainer Peter Eurton drops this 2-year-old from a MSW to the maiden claiming ranks for the first time and he’s 20% with that move. The son of Afleet Alex has two route races to his name and wasn’t bad in either. Jockey James Graham takes over.
