Wednesday, May 9

COLD BATH (NW1) - First-timer from the Fraley barn kicked into gear into the final turn and powered home in :27 1/5.

Thursday, May 10

ALL STAR PLAYER (NW3 FM) - Filly had excess cover, rallied three wide into the final turn, got pushed four then five wide, had to check to avoid a breaker and still finished decently in an eventful trip.

Friday, May 11

WE SAULTE YOU ($15,000 Clm) - Used on his brush to the lead, faced hard pressure and held pretty gamely late.

DARENA HANOVER (NW7 FM) - Filly followed wide and closed with plenty of pace to be second best to her more seasoned rivals.

MACHAPELO (NW5) - Making his seasonal debut, half-million dollar winner as a freshman grinded a long way uncovered and held his ground gamely late.

Sunday, May 13

MUSIC MAN NZ ($20,000 Clm) - Made his local return and was a very solid pocket-sitting second at 41/1.

WESTERN SHORE (NW25000) - Millionaire was used to the front, set a strong clip under pressure and was nipped late in a tough beat.
