Since arriving at Buffalo Raceway in early March, Julio's Girl (David McNeight III) has reeled off three straight wins in as many starts, all in convincing fashion.
Scoring from the four post, Julio's Girl had a bit of a tussle to reach the top with Hey Sweetie (Billy Davis Jr.). Once she cleared, there were no serious threats as Hey Sweetie and Hey Kobe could only watch Julio's Girl and battle for the minor awards.

With the favored State Ofmyhead AS, Kimco Kid and Lucky Sheila all making early breaks, Well Connected Kid took off and set the fractions of :30.3, 1:01.0 and 1:30.3. Call My Broker was first off the pylons and headed straight to the top at the three-quarter marker. From there, it was clear sailing as no one was able to mount any challenges.
Owned by Franklin Meier and trained by Angelo Nappo, it was the second victory in nine tries for the 6-year-old gelded Call My Broker (Muscle Massive-Pretty Crafty) in 2020. The win jumped his seasonal winnings to $14,776 and $132,944 lifetime.
