Calder: Back on the turf


The turf course, which has been rendered practically useless all month, is back in business today and currently labeled as good with the rail out ten feet.  No surprise that a Wesley Ward trained filly, Girl Bar, is odds on to win the first grass race of the day.

The wind continues to blow hard out of the east which means a headwind down the stretch and as was the case yesterday seems to help favor closers and for some reasons those racing away from the rail. It remains to be seen if that trend will continue throughout the card.
