Email

  They made $10,000 claimers  go 1 1/4 miles in the opener, and Stopbluffing ($5.70) edged Empire Express in about the slowest-paced dirt race anyone's ever seen. The posted fractions were 27.88, 54.61, 1:19.81 and 1:45.11, with a final time of 2:11.13, more than 10 seconds off the track record.

  Second win in a row for Stopbluffing, who had been 1 for his last 29 before that, and had never won past a mile & 70 yards.
