BOILER BREES -

Odds on favorite was under the gun from the rail, set a blazing pace under pressure and excusably tired while holding the show

THAT FRISKE FEELIN -

Left and was parked the mile in a speed duel with the odds on favorite, tough trip but I think this Burke horse is ready to win

2/16: 3w, no bias

HEARTS N FLOWERS*** -

Left from post 7 and was used hard to clear past a :27 opener, set a quick pace under heavy pressure from the 6/5 favorite, shook that one off but was out-kicked while holding bravely for the place

STIRLING CHARISMA -

Grinded first over a long way from post 6, made up good ground through the middle-half and finished gamely to just miss

 

THE MEADOWS

 

2/18: 3w, no bias

2/17: 4w, no bias

R GAUWITZ HANOVER -

Meadows shipper seemed to like this track, was 7th at the half, followed cover three wide around a tiring horse off turn three, swung three deep late-final turn and finished strongly to drew clear, last half in :56 2/5

EXTREME MACHINE N -

7th early, followed cover, swung wide for the drive and finished solidly for the place, last quarter in :28 2/5

I FOUND MY BEACH -

Left from post 6 and was parked to the lead in :27 1/5, set the pace and held well for the place behind the pocket winner

LAST DRAGON -

Had post 7, followed cover three wide around the final turn and finished sharply

ESPEN DE VIE -

Classy sort followed tiring cover, went three wide at the three quarters and was wide the entire 4th quarter, gained ground before flattening out late; may be coming around now

KIWI IDEAL N -

Left from post 5 but took back into a tuck 4th off turn one, went first over into a stepped-up final half against a leader that got away with a slow half, finished gamely for the place
