AQUEDUCT

DUBLINTHEPLEASURE (Race 6 @AQU 1/4/18) – New York bred rebounded off a poor race and finished well to just miss defeating former stakes winner Outplay, who was dropping sharply in class for new barn.  Spotted weight to that rival in a really good effort at this $16,000 claiming level.

TAMPA BAY DOWNS

MANCORA (Race 5 @TAM, 1/2/19) – this hopeless longshot finished strongly and hit the wire looking like a solid 2-1 favorite in this maiden $16,000 claimer.  However, in the process the Ice Box filly cut off another runner at the top of the lane and was subsequently DQ’d.  Given the level of this class, don’t know if this one can repeat this ‘winning’ maiden performance or not, but she was best in this field.

TURFWAY PARK

VALKYRIE (Race 7 @TP, 1/3/19) – first time starter took a commanding lead in the stretch over the two betting choices and was very green in the lane.  She waited on her competition as the odds-on choice battled and took the lead nearing the wire.  Awesome Again filly then came again late under Luan Machado to garner a better-than-it-looks victory.  Has talent.
