Calder: Speed still kills

Email

  Speed now five for five. Woodland laid a half length off the pace of Rexson's Rose down the backstretch but was in front before the quarter pole and maintained a safe advantage through the stretch with the aid of the bias. Paster's Bad Habit made a run at the winner from outside turning for home but then lugged in badly while failing to change leads through midstretch and could not sustain his run.

  The sixth race decimated by scratches with only four horses left due to the surface change. Hot Hot Mama the class and speed of the field with improving Successful Song likely her main rival.
