Palos Verdes Stakes (G2) Recap - Winner: Roy H


Roy H figured to dominate this race if he showed up and that is exactly what happened. He stalked from the outside post under Paco Lopez, took over in the stretch, and cruised to an easy four length tally. Seven panel specialist Kanthaka found his best stride in the stretch and rolled past front runner Conquest Tsunami to finish a clear 2nd. The latter held the show over an even Awesome Anywhere. St. Joe Bay was next and Touched by Autism trailed throughout.

Astra Stakes (G3) Recap - Winner: Pantsonfire


My best bet top choice Pantsonfire ($6.20) dominated this race from off the pace. The pace was fast for the marathon distance with India Mantuana and Plein Air mixing it up early. K P Pergoliscious and Pantsonfire sat patiently in midpack and the latter rallied strongly to post a 5+ length tally under Flavien Prat. K P Pergoliscious held 2nd over Lynne痴 Legacy and was followed by Plein Air, Trust Fund Kitty, Arctic Roll, Copper Fever, India Mantuana, and Amboseli (pulled up/vanned off).

Megahertz Stakes (G3) Recap - Winner: Vasilika


Vasilika did not disappoint as the strong favorite. She sat patiently in midpack as Ms Bad Behavior carved out the fractions from the rail under Mike Smith. They tried to slow things down on the front end but Joel Rosario was having none of that and he went after the lead aboard La Sardane. The latter ended up weakening in the stretch and Ms Bad Behavior was back in front by a length. Vasilika and jockey Flavien Prat were on the attack and class prevailed by a length and a half. Ms Bad Behavior fought hard to hold the place by a head over 36-1 longshot Zaffinah and it was another six lengths back to La Sardane. Amandine checked in a disappointing 5th and Last Promise Kept was injured and vanned off.
