Aqueduct: Main track fast


  The main track is fast for Wednesday's card, as the 18-day spring meet gets underway. The term "spring" is used loosely, as a winter storm watch has been posted for the Northeast from Thursday night into Friday, when the first three turf races of the season are scheduled.

  With the developing storm expected to bring heavy rain and/or wet snow, high winds and temperatures in the 30s, the chances for any grass racing Friday appear slim and none - and Slim was last seen heading south down I-95.

  The Wednesday program includes five maiden-claiming races, and you can take a 5x4 wheel to cover the early double for $20.

  Welcome spring!
