5-9. A nice way to end Week five. Five winners on top [1st, $10.00; 3rd, $3.90; 4th, $6.00; 6th, $5.00; 7th, $3.10]. Also, cold exactas in the 6th [$27.80/$2] and 7th [$9.00]. Plus a few tri's if the selections were used properly.
The five-win day means we're now 23 wins away from the coveted century-mark and a mad-dash to that finish line is in store over the next six racing days. Stay tuned...
The weather seemed threatening early in the day but turned out fairly nice. Partly sunny and temps in the mid 70s -- and actually a little humid. A comfortable crowd of 12,001 turned out to end Travers Week.
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.
