Her Blind Side and Coracoracora both won their first career starts on Saturday, June 22 to give Pleasant Acres Stallions resident Bodexpress his first two winners as a sire.

Coracoracora then won going five furlongs at Pleasanton Fair Grounds Racetrack for trainer Blaine Wright. Alexander Chavez rode Coracoracora to a three-quarters of a length victory against maiden special weight fillies and is owned by Randy Morris.
