4-10. OK, four winners on top [1st, $3.10; 4th, $4.30; 6th, $7.40; 7th, $8.40], which is pretty good -- but we're still plagued by our second-pick scoring, a frustrating turn of events that has hounded us over the past week or so. Our second selection won four more on Monday.

Otherwise, cold exacta in the 1st [$8.40/$2]. Top pick over our third selection for exactas in the 4th [$19.40], 6th [$21.20], and 7th [$30.60]. and in that 7th our second pick completed the tri [$170.50].

Another nice afternoon brought out a crowd of 13,031.


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 halves 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.
