Race 2 Comments:  MY COOL BREEZE draws 7-hole off an improved two move try from post 8 at this level in last. 14-year-old has lost a few steps over the years but may still have enough to beat this group. SUMMERTIME FEVER well bred filly has never hit the board in 7 career starts and made breaks in sophomore debut, but looked much improved with addition of hobbles in useful qualifer trotting a 1:00.2 final half and may be set to come around for good trot barn.
