Friday, Race 7 – Stella Rose
Ernie said: "Kevin Attard trained filly went in 1:01b on 09/16. She worked after the break over a fair track rated 3. This particular work was in company with Melmich."
Friday, Race 5 – March to My Tune
Ernie said: "Cotey trainee went in 1:00.20b on 09/28 before the break. The track was a little slow rated 2.5. Showed good speed in the work, third of the layoff angle in play will be a fair price barn starting to get a little hot."
Sunday, Race 5 – Malaya
Ernie said: "A first-time starter, the two-year-old worked in 1:00.20 on 09/17 for trainer Mike Mattine with Luis Contreras aboard and outworked Tulsa by a couple lengths. They worked after the break track pretty even rated 3. Love the jockey trainer combo for 2yo 1st-time starters."
