CALDER: Looking back


I've been busy helping the Equibase chart crew with the footnotes today so haven't had time to look at the last several races or sum up the card. Gaucho turned in a real game performance to win his maiden in the ninth, coming again after being headed by first time starter St Maximus Gato at the head of the stretch to eek out a narrow win.  

Omar's Tiger has been solid on the turf. Wired an overmatched group of entry level allowance runners in the tenth with longshot Go Tebow Go providing the only real challenge.

Double Judge was 9-5 on the morning line but was allowed to slip away at 4-1 when wiring the eleventh. Huge price considering he was beaten by former stakes winner Noble Robyn in his last.

The racetrack seemed to favor speed during the second half of the program until Macho's Wildcat circled and won the finale despite failing to change leads and lugging in badly through the final furlong.

Luis Saez the star of the day winning three races with Pedro Monterrey, Manny Cruz and Angel Moreno each notching a two bagger.
