Through The Binocs

In the second race, Master Cip veered in at the start and actually was in the gap of the clubhouse turn. Jockey Kent Desormeaux was then able to get Master Cip back to the course and then rushed up to challenge the early pace. But the horse had nothing left on the far turn and dropped back to be last. Favored Zivo was able to come off the pace to gain the lead at the top of the stretch and draw away for the victory.

THIRD RACE:Holiday’s Jewel broke slowly and was last out of the gate but then quickly rushed up to set the pace. She was soon challenged by favored Scampering and in the stretch, Scampering had plenty left and drew away for the victory.

SIXTH RACE: Volcano Run was able to stalk the pace while saving ground under Ramon Dominguez. In the stretch drive, Dominguez was able to angle Volcano Run outside to find a clear running lane and once asked, he finished well to gain the lead and the victory. Superestrella saved ground early but had to go wide around the turn to build up momentum for the stretch drive. But he was too far back and could only get up to be fourth.

EIGHTH RACE: When the gates opened up, Bid a Moon broke slowly and favored Ullapool was hustled out to the lead. After a quarter mile she was on cruise control and started to widen her lead against the rest of the field. By the sixteenth pole, Javier Castellano threw out the anchor and started pulling up Ullapool who was comfortably in front and was in no danger of being caught.

The final time of 1:23.27 and winning margin of 9 1/2 lengths does not indicate how dominant the victory was.
