Wednesday, August 13

YANKEE TATTLER (NW2FM) showed early speed, yielded, got shuffled, tipped out heading home and came home strongly but too late.

STAR PHOTO (CLMHCP20/25000) left, tucked, pulled to the half, raced uncovered, challenged to the third panel but tired at 35-1. Given the right field and the right trip she should score.
