Major Marvel ($12.40-third) and Blind Date ($13.40) won first time out for top trainers Dale Capuano and Hamilton Smith. In the eighth race, the Louisiana native guided Lil’s Lassie ($6) to an impressive score in a $40,000 allowance test beating stakes veterans Exchanging Fire, Take a Check, For Kisses and All Smiles to the wire.
