Race 2: 6 Furlongs. Clm 35000

#5 Leaky Cup (5/1) – Making his 1st start as a 3-year-old, this colt ran a competitive figure for this level in his maiden breaker last year.  With natural progression he’ll be more than dangerous.

#7 Go Rose (3/1) – She looks to get a perfect trip.

Race 10: 6 Furlongs. F.OC 62500n2x
