Race 7 // 8:00 pm ET // maiden claiming // 6-1/2 furlongs
#2 K P Silver Bullet (4-1 ML)
Gelded since last effort in May when claimed by Bill Spawr. Gets pace to stalk and drops in class from $50,000 to $40,000. Win bet. Daily Double 2-6 to second spot play today.
Race 8 // 8:30 pm ET // optional claiming // 5 furlongs (turf)
#6 Catemaco (4-1 ML)
His dam was million dollar-plus seller back in 2003. No foals to win on turf yet, but, to me, this one looks special. Consider grass breeding with sire, quick in maiden score, been off a while, but has been working steady since end of May. Love the blow-out in last workout. Win bet and using 3 Star Racer underneath in exotics.
