Hyrule  
$2.80

Winter Knight    
$3.60

Not a good race for first-time starters.  Formal King finished 8th and Delegator was eased.  However, he did look very good in the post parade. Once the gates opened, it was Barreling Home who turned in the most impressive performance battling on the lead from the beginning before drawing off.

Debut runner Perfect New was slow out of the gate and beat only Matty's G Force who showed some speed before weakening.  Screen to Screen ran a good race, but he was outfinished by the winner who got his nose down in front.

Nolite Timere

This is one of those races where many of the contestants may wish for a do-over.  First, 4 horses were scratched including first time runner, Atlas Mountain.  Then, Aforementioned broke down.  Finally, both Alpha Dancer and Prince Dubai stumbled in the first turn.  Alpha Dancer recovered and ran a credible 4th, but Prince Dubai's jockey lost his irons and basically eased him mount in order to regain them.  Still, Fortune Faded drew away nicely and it's not his fault everyone else had trouble.
