3-9. Three winners on top [2nd, $3.30; 8th, $3.30; 9th, $5.10]. In the 2nd it was our top pick over our third choice with our second pick next for the exacta [$10.60/$2] and tri [$122.00]. We tagged them 1-2-3 in exact order in the 8th [exacta, $7.60; tri, $18.00]. And we hit the late double cold [$8.80].

16,670 turned out for another nice afternoon of racing. The weather was comfortable and sunny -- but the soaking rain from Saturday night kpet another couple of races from being run on the turf. Both the 1st and the 4th were moved to the main track, although later races stayed on the grass.

Immediately following the 6th the in-house monitors flashed a shot of someone leaning out of a concession stand waving a broom. Much to our confusion the crowd let out a cheer. Moments later it dawned on us -- the Yankees vs Boston matinee had ended. Yankees sweep!


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.
