CALDER: Main track even?


After three races, the main track appears to be playing evenly.  The first race was won from gate to wire by Sockeye Silver with the odds on Daisey Lee hanging and finishing second. This one gives the impression she may be that kind and worth playing against at a short price again next time. Winners time of :53 and 3/5 was more than a full second faster than the open division of this lower level 2-year-old maiden claimer went an hour later.

Sweet In The City rallied off a contested pace before outlasting a game Prince of Song to win the second race while Madness N'Mayhem rallied wide and from well back to run down a determined Imperial Czar and his own stablemate Indian Empire to capture his debut in the third race. As mentioned this was a much slower split than the girls ran for the same $25,000 claiming tag in the opener.

Turf coming up.  Rail out five feet with the grass course listed as yielding at this time.
