CALDER: Lot to report

Email

..... over the  last 45 minutes while, I must confess, I was watching Sox-Yanks battle.  First came the rain and a change to a sloppy track and then another perplexing non-call by the stewards when Laughing Matters angled in sharply shortly after the start of the seven place forcing Put Me First to check hard and in turn bother eventual runnerup street Aplpeal. Laughing Matters went on to win the race and somehow survive the inquiry. Go figure. 

The rain put an end to turf racing for the rest of the day, forcing both the eighth(won gamely b iy sharkbait Ooh Haha) and the finale off the grass and over to the wet main track.  

   By the way it's 3-3 after four in Boston.
