Calder: Midway report


Speed not nearly as dominant as yesterday but it still doesn't hurt to be close up or in front once turning for home if the results of this afternoon's first five races a true indication of how the track is playing. The wind is not nearly as strong as on Thursday. No turf once again this afternoon but with a little luck and some more win perhaps back on the green tomorrow.

   Favorites not faring well thus far with only the odds on Sparr saving the chalkies and just barely in an extremely slow 6.5 furlong maiden claiming dash for 2yo fillies completed in 1:22 and change. She was 3-5. 

Richie London will try to get the chalkplayers back in business as the 3-5 choice to win the sixth event.
