Calder: Shock in the slop


Hard to explain this result as the three longest prices on the board finished one, two, three in the fifth race.  Enormiso, at 25-1, ran down pace dueling Vlaminck who was also 25-1 at post time. They were followed across the wire by the 19-1 Smart Colt. The top two finishers combined for a $663. exacta with the $2 trifecta returning $4981 which probably amounted to just about the entire pool.  The favorites never showed up. Givemethirtydays was dull from striking position off the pace and Wild Rate hung badly while drifting steadily and finishing out in the middle of the track following a very slow start.. Sole Runner flashed a little speed but was done before going a half mile and didn't beat a horse. The final time for 6.5 furlongs was a slow 1:20.3/5.
