CD: Danzon ($5.20) easily in 3rd

Email

Danzon obviously will scratch from the Mint Julep tomorrow after posting her 9th career victory in the 3rd race here today, the first of 4 alw's on the 11-race card. With M.Mena up, the classy 7yo mare passed all 5 of her rivals within about an eighth-mile span to prove miles the best. She returned $5.20 as fave and ended an early p3 (7-2-6) that paid $84.60 for a deuce.

There are 23 MTP for the 4th, a $15k N2L f-m sprint, and Gray Hart's Girl (C.Borel, T.Amoss) is the even-money favorite in a field of 6.
