CALDER: More blood for chalkplayers


Favorites continue to take a beating with only the odds on Kristy N Change holding serve over the first eight races. The latest victim was Zaffer who had no excuse in the eighth after stalking longshot pace setter Out OF Wine and making up no ground through the stretch on the ultimate winner. In fact Out Of Wine returned a juicy $33.60 despite being ridden by the red hot, leading rider Luis Saez who won five races here yesterday and had also taken the previous event aboard Green Lite Special.

The main track appears to be playing evenly today with a mix of wire to wire and late running winners.Both grass winners came from off the pace including Green Lite Special who overcame trouble on the turn when shuffled back out of good position but was still good enough to run down the leaders including that hanging machine Southern Glitter.
