He appeared a trifle short in a dash then came back and finished second to Mor-Snoozey, indicating he is about ready to earn a purse again. I Silver Spot turned in a game try when I third to Old Limber and might improve at the added yardage asked in this encounter. , Another who might gain a following is J Court Shannon, who makes his debut after arriving from Gulfstream Park. Morning workouts have been sparkling.
