RITZY TAGS blew my mind with the move she made on the stretch turn sprinting in last. She was away poorly and lacking racing room on the far turn. I’d given up on her then the explosive move. She beat older in last while today she faces straight 3-year-olds under favorable allowance conditions. She routed once at SA showed little, based on her pedigree going two turns in her wheel house top and bottom.  Price should be right several others will take play.

Race office has come up with an outstanding betting card on Saturday; singles are hard to come by. The feature came up salty but that's where I'm going. Awesome Indian is in good hands and other then the stakes try, he's been very consistent. Routing today he faces an easier task, mom's side very strong going two turns. Catch him!


Love the 2-year-olds; fillies are my favorites. Sunday’s ANGIE C STAKES shapes up as a three-horse race based on my figures. KISS MY LULU is a tick or two faster than PRINCESS KENNEDY and JERRE TO CARRIE, RUNNING TIME 110 2/5……..
