The sequence kicked off in Race 4 as M B’s Munning [No. 3, $67.50] took a 6 1/2-furlong $16,000 claiming sprint under Lane Luzzi for trainer Wayne Potts. Race 5 saw the Danny Gargan-trained Brick Ambush [No. 2, $10.60]graduate in a one-mile state-bred maiden special weight with Junior Alvarado up.
In Race 6, the co-featured $120,000 Tepin, Memorialize [No. 3, $4.40*] ran down pacesetter Awesome Czech late in the stretch to score her first stakes win with Manny Franco up for conditioner Graham Motion. The Rick Dutrow, Jr.-trained Kinetic Sky [No. 4, $12.60] followed with another off-the-pace victory in Race 7, a seven-furlong optional claimer, with Irad Ortiz, Jr. up.
In Race 8, the $150,000 Autumn Days, the Carlos Martin-trained Lady Milagro [No. 2, $104.50] pulled off a massive upset in the six-furlong turf sprint to provide apprentice jockey Luis Rivera, Jr. his first stakes conquest.
With the carryover already ensured, post-time favorite Roagna [No. 1, $6.90*] drew clear in late stretch of Race 9, a 1 1/16-mile state-bred turf maiden, to graduate on debut with Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano up for trainer Jim Bond.
