Calder: Wow!


So much for all the interesting 2-year-olds in the ninth race. Reprized Halo just blew them all away, making two runs from the rail before drawing out to win by half a pole for trainer Manny Azpurua and jockey Jose Alvarez.  Truly Distinctive staggered home a well beaten second at 9-5 with longshot Majest Express third.  Both Great Scot and The Waco Kid barely made it across the wire whiel Racing Aptitude made a little run around the second turn before flattening out badly. At least Reprized Halo was my top pick in today's Calder analysis so that $15.20 mutuel will help my ROI. Unfortunately, it did not help fill my W A L L E T.  I did not play.
