4-9. Finally got a four-bagger [1st, $6.40; 3rd, $6.50; 6th, $5.60; 8th, $4.50]. A nice mixed bag of gimmicks with the picks, including two cold exactas [3rd, $18.20/$2; 6th, $25.00/$2].
Attendance was 18,190. Thunderstorms were predicted for the afternoon but they never materialized. Weather was sunny and warm, with the humidity still lingering.
The Hall of Fame ceremonies were held Monday morning and a group of Hall of Famers held court outside the jockeys' room in the afternoon to sign autographs. Jerry Bailey, Ron Turcotte and Jonathon Sheppard were among those present.
No racing. Dark day.
If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halve are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
