Calder: Hardly a man alive...


...can survive taking 2-5. Not in this game.  Especially when dealing with lightly raced 2-year-olds returning on short rest like Cristal Jak who granted got brutalized early by jockey Manny Cruz when rushing up and steadied sharply behind loose on the lead Limbo Dancer going into the far turn. But the favorite really got the staggers down the stretch, failing to change leads and looking like there was something really amiss as she stopped to a walk and finished off the board. Meanwhile Limbo Dancer took advantage of the track bias and her inside post to clear off early then withstand 45-1 Fashionable Elsa when taken out near the middle of the track for the drive. 

  Male version of the same entry level allowance dash for 2-year-olds on tap next with Ribo Bobo holding at 3-2 with morning line choice Determinato currently at a generous 7-1 if you're not worried about the four months he's been on the sidelines since winning his debut in impressive fashion.
