Calder: Midway report


Midway through the afternoon's eight stakes. Pickapocket the gamest winner on the card after outdueling even money Bim Bam to win the Bonnie Heath Turf Cup.  Former claimer Devilish Lady the most surprising thus far with her easy win in the Joe O'Farrell Juvenile Fillies. As noted earlier, nice to see Howie Tesher back with a good young horse following Racing Aptitude's popular triumph in the Arthur Appleton. Tackleberry just dominated the Jack Dudley Sprint handicap with none of the favorites in the race showing up at all.

    Jack Price Juvenile on deck. The race lost some luster when Gourmet Dinner scratched. Up and coming maiden breaker Manicero pounded to 7-5 despite presence of Grade 3 Iroquois runner-up Ribo Bobo who was the early choice.
