7 Lucky Logan - Bullet workouts and excellent clocker reports precede his debut; from the live Peter Miller barn.

Race 3 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Midnight Mayhem - Tiny edge in a really awful looking field; the key is dropping down to this bottom level.

Long Shot - 6 Belonging

Race 5 - 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Fanny Brice - Despite a win in a condition $25K claimer, is dropped further to $16K; similar effort can win right back.
