Trainer Jose Pinchin and jockey Elvis Trujillo lit up the tote board with Dreamed to Dream who paid $167.60 winning the afternoon's third race. Dreamed to Dream was dropping into high level claiming company after making her career debut on the dirt against maiden special weight competiton. Pinchin by the way has exceptional numbers with dirt to turf runners having now won with 8 of the last 18 horses he's switched over to the grass off main track races.
General Maximus remained undefeated in two starts but probably wasn't the best horse in the second race. That hollow distinction belongs to Afleet Express who walked out of the gate and was hung wide around the turn behind the pace setting winner, doing well to get up for second money despite the unlucky trip. Afleet Express, a son of Afleet Alex, had overcome a similarly slow start to win his debut in New York but could not quite repeat the effort over what has been a speed favoring strip.
