SOUTHWIND TERROR*** –

Left well to the early lead, was sailing along and leading by almost two lengths when he broke early on the final turn, dropped back three lengths, was adeptly coaxed back on stride beautifully by Jordan Stratton, rushed to the new leader and drew off to win by 5 lengths under his own power as tons the best

BEST SAID –

Left from post 8 and was used hard to the lead in :27 2/5, yielded to pressure and weakened but that may have been a tougher trip than it appears on a windy day

BETTOR REASON N –

Left from post 7 and was used hard parked the mile without cover pressing a blazing pace; tough trip

CHOCOLATE CRACKERS –

Left strongly to the lead in :26 2/5, set a fast pace under heavy pressure and held well

SHADIOS –

Left and was three wide to a wicked :26 2/5 first quarter, remained parked and pushed a fast opening half then excusably tired in an impossible trip
