Calder: Raining again


Adding insult to injury it has started to rain again and looks like this one may last for a while. A turn of events that probably dashes any hopes of Saturday's stakes races staying on the turf.  The main track has been sealed

and is currently listed as "good" but likely to be downgraded to "slop" before too long.

           First time starter Gray Bones took a good deal of money, closing as the 2-1 second choice in the opener, and ran to his backing putting away an early challenge from Fort Pyramid before winning off rather easily. Another slow start and dull showing from the favored Dutch Cay.

           The second race was run in the rain and won from off the pace by the class dropping She'sfrom Delaware who was bet from her 6-1 morning line to 2-1 and also lived up to expectations when rallying to an easy victory.
