3-9. Always nice to grab 33% with winners-on-top -- but overall we didn't hit any homeruns on Monday. Best results was probably the cold exacta in the 5th [$24.80/$2].

A nice weekday crowd of 17,498 showed up to enjoy the races. It was overcast and unseasonably cool -- but another nice day.

We complete Week Four with 55 winners-on-top. Our goal is always to pass the century mark by meet's end and that will be a chore this year. We fell short in 2006 and it's possible again unless we can drop in two or three truly bang-up days over the next two weeks -- not to mention hitting solidly on all the other days as well! To be on the pace we want after the two-third mark of the meet we should be in the neighborhood of 66 winners. Obviously we're well back of that number. But we'll plug along and try to make this interesting. Stay tuned...


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.
