RACE 8 WO    Shady Well Stakes
$150.000    2yoF   ON-bred   5 1/2f    Dirt    

 Mrs Champsville  Hawaiian Shirt Guy  Olguin G L     9/1 120

Broke maiden like a big horse, galloping by five at MD for MWS last month.  None of her foes that day have come back, so I can’t tell what she beat, and that was for a very small purse.  Still, you have to like that race despite the slow works.  I’ll look at some others.

 Gostly Graveyard  Downwind Stables  Bejarano R    8/5 120

Nice score at PIM to get her maiden out of the way and did it in a fairly fast time.  She was getting Lasix for the first time that afternoon and maybe that helped a bit as well.  A continued string of works over the Baltimore surface and she looks ready to take on this group.

 Il Ponte  Big Guns Stables  Husbands P      6/5 120

Just missed v. Alw foes over this strip last out and was closing fast that afternoon.  She may want the longer distances and this is actually 1/16th shorter than that race, so she will have to be ridden accordingly.  That was still a heck of an effort and the extra try v. winners gives her the slight edge in my book.

 Light Up The Pie  Pan Farms  Da Silva E R      10/1 120

Just missed last out here north-of-the-border trying to get her maiden out of the way.  She tired a bit in the late going of that one going 5/8th’s so it’s hard to get crazy on her in this one.  Winners, longer…  nah, I’ll take a pass.

 Xmas On The Moon  Lemax Farms  Moreno O     12/1 120

Another that is still a maiden as she tired at first asking down in LA.  She just doesn’t have a lot to get excited about – still a maiden, tired in her only effort, going longer – she may be a pace factor, but I don’t expect her to get anything other than a minor share, at best.
