CALDER : Looks like good day for speed


From the early races, it looks like it could be a good day for speed although caveat bettor the same pattern seemed to exist yesterday only to reverse itself over the last third of the card. 

Seed of Faith was on the lead throughout, upset the opener at 17-1 coming off the layoff in a race where the favorite Intense Elvira was a definite bet against coming off long layoff and the farm for an outfit that rarely wins.  

  Solar Power got the early jump on 7-5 Have Faith In Me, never looked back under jockey Edgar Perez who was a replacement for Belmont winning rider Cornelio Velasquez who'd originally been named on the 3-year-old maiden. Have Faith In Me lost the race on the clubhouse turn when shuffled back next to last and wide around the bend.

   Smart Kiddo, who had to steady sharply in his last, rallied from several lengths off longshot Champion Eclilpse to win the third while pounded to 4-5 by the trip players. Second win in a row for Perez.
