Race 1

#12 ESS EL YOU was DQ’d off of a winning run in her last race. She and the runner who got moved up for the win were a good five lengths clear of the rest of the field. Regression is a concern, but she’s had about a month between races so should be ok today. #7STRIKE HAPPY looked home free in her last run before getting caught late by a much the best winner. She make her 2nd start off of a 4 month layoff and cuts back in distance from 6 furlongs to 5 ½ today. #5 DOC’S CLASSIC has been running evenly lately and is another contender in here but was well beaten in her last start by ESS EL YOU.
