CALDER: Chalky beginning


Chalkplayers are smiling after the early double which was taken by the 4-5 My Reflection and 3-5 Prime Precision, both winning off like the odds on choices they were. The main track favored speed on Thursday and My Reflection held serve with her easy wire to wire tally.

Track officials are calling the main track Good and Turf Yielding but I'm thinking it's more like Fast and the turf Good and the equibase chartcallers agree and are going that way for the official charts.

Dolce Pentimento has opened a surprising 3-5 for the third race despite the fact he's been idle six months. She has logged plenty of miles in the a.m. in preparation for her return.
