Calder: Sloppy track for Summit day


It doesn't look like there's much chance of this track drying out by the time we get to the four graded stakes at the end of the card. Meanwhile the undercard has been decimated by scratrches in the three scheduled turf races that were moved to the wet main strip. Five of the original 12 entered for the upcoming 3rd race are out including morning line favorites Ventania and A Little Off. Only five of the original 11 entrants are left to go in the fifth race while the Sweettrickydancer has lost three, Sansannah, Blue Angel Express and Pleasant Heiress.

Two scratches to report in the Summit races but neither have to do with track conditions. Both Apriority(Smile) and Close It Out(Carry Back) have been withdrawn due to foot abscesses.
