16 Holy Week(L) 119 Davila, Jr 4-x-x Breed 30-1

Breakin the Fever was third behind a repeat winner in debut; call based on price potential. Pierce's Prize set the splits when a game third in debut; dangerous. Tiz Time To Shine bested 'Prize' by a half-length when second on Aug. 10; obvious player. Persuasive Devil was a clear-cut second in last; very playable. B. B.'s Remington's work tab concluded with 3-furlong bullet; very interesting. Ostrolenka debuts for Pletcher; too obvious for our taste.
