Calder: All Stakes Pick-4


Finally getting to the meat of the card with the first of five stakes, the eighth through eleventh making up the all-stakes pick-4.  Unfortunately the rain has taken some of the lustre away from half of this gimmick with both the eighth and tenth off the turf and scratches galore. Six of the 13 original entrants are out in the upcoming judy's Red Shoes with Trip for A J a 1-2 favorite and probably a lot tougher to beat on dirt than she might have been if the race stayed on the turf.

   Gaucho continues to improve for trainer Marty Wolfson, wiring second level optional claimers for his third straight win with the red hot Fundit a fast closing second.
