Belmont

THOMAS HILL (Race 6@BEL, October 19, 2014, 6 furlongs turf, Claiming $40,000) The fourth choice had a less than desirable beginning hitting the side of the gate, then be bounced in between two rivals. Not long after he foud his stride he was then squeezed and jostled between foes. After that he stayed near the rear and when asked to swing out widest of all before entering the stretch he obeyed and began to rally professionally. He put forth an excellent effort and overcame the initial adversity to win.

Golden Gate

BLU JON (Race 6@GG, October 19, 2014, 6 furlongs turf, Claiming $40,000) The favorite was away in last and stayed there until the backstretch, began to advance but was behind a wall for the entire backstretch run. He then made progress on the rail during the turn but swung out to the center before entering the stretch. He then waited for a place to go but eventually had to check while still a long way from the leaders. He swung out once then out again before he had a clear run, closed very fast and finished second by a couple of lengths.

Hawthorne

KEEP ON SHINING (Race 2 @HAW, October 18, 2014, Mile 70 yards, Claiming $15,000) Longshot was a little tardy at the start moved up but checked very slightly before the turn then traveled wide throughout the entire first turn and entered the backstretch widest of all. Advanced to a good position down the backstretch but was still wide and caught wide throughout the entire far turn and entered the stretch about six-seven wide. Gave a game chase and refused to quit, finishing second by only a length.
