3-10. Winners in the 3rd [$4.90], 5th [$3.40] and 7th [$4.00].

It was a frustrating week. Started out cold - and then proceeded through the week seeing a lot of "B" picks win. Five of my second selections won on Monday. That's frustrating because it's often a close choice being the "A" and "B" selections. So, at least some of those "B"s could pretty easily have been "A"s and added to my winners-on-top total -- but, in the end it's about giving out good onfo and ultimately a day like Monday counts in that category: Eight of the ten winners were top or second picks, and...

We gave out reverse exactas in the 1st [$6.00/$2], 2nd [$41.40], amd 10th [$12.20]. Cold exactas in the 3rd [$23.40] and 5th [$8.80]. The 3rd actually featured an A-B-C-D finish, so besides the cold exacta it was also a cold tri [$70.00] and super [$148.00].

14,584 attended. The day started much like the weekend, sunny and comfortable - however, past mid-card things clouded up and there some light showers.


Dark day. No racing.


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.
