CALDER: No turf again


More rain last night so no grass again today and possibly on Monday as well except perhaps for the stakes.   A chalky beginning to the card with 7-5 choices Bronx Babe and Sure Success holding serve in the early double and the fairly well bet Baraka's Dream registering at 5-2 despite drifting steadily through the final furlong in the third race.

The switch from turf to dirt has actually increased the size of the field for the fourth race with two also's no drawing in to make it an 11 horse lineup instead of the ten originally scheduled had the conditioned claimer been run as scheduled over the inner oval. Evil Powder has taken the bulk of the early money with his cause surely aided by the switch in venue. Now 2-1 with 13 minutes to post.
