With the two stakes ending the card Saturday -- and with favorites such as Afleet Alex and Ashado in those race, and Midway Road in the 7th and Friendly Island in the 8th -- well, it looks like a very short P4. However, we wouldn't be shocked to see an upset in one or two of those race -- particularly with the overnight and early morning rains soaking the track -- we just can't find any alternatives to get excited about. So we'll keep the plays light today...

RACE THREE...$10 exacta... Two Bayou over Gold Dancer.
...$5 exacta box same two.

All turf wagers are turf only

Total bet...$20.00
