RACE 5

1A-Misslarose – Five-time winner here this season broke again after just missing to the favorite Jack Vernon on 4-6, demanding draw, yet both halves of the Burke entry gets class relief

1A-Crazy Wow – Last year’s Breeders Crown runner up & double millionaire won his qualifier over the classy Caprice Hill, demanding draw, but his stable & entrymate came out blazing

6-Lovely Lynnly – Beaten favorite finished a strong second in her 4YO debut off a standout 1:54.4 qualifier, lightly-raced filly with plenty of upside

 

RACE 9

6-Mattjestic Tempo – Was once again forced wide from a near impossible spot after another slow start, just missed with a lot more punch before that, who shows up tonight?

 

2-Pass Line Blue Chip – Filly has won three of five this season in Delaware, fresh off a much-needed tightening mile she lands inside a camera-shy field here
