CALDER: In a stunner, fast and on the turf


Despite some dire weather forecasts earlier in the week, the main track is fast and the turf course is open for business today. The grass is listsed as "good" to begin the day but could well be upgraded to firm before the afternoon is over.

Unfortunately there are several key scratches to report including key contenders like Trim The Sail in the opener, 2-1 morning line favorite Archmani in the second( which scratched down to a five horse field) and 5-2 morning line choice Woncendone in the 5th race and 2-1 morning line favorite Checkitoff in the 6th event.. The entire list of scratches follow.

First    Trim The Sail  Sultry Gibson

Second  ARchmani   Joyful Bird

Third  All the Also Eligibles

Fourth She Is Gibson  Get Your Shine On

Fifth  It's Our Party  Woncendone

Sixth  Checkitoff

Seventh  Dynamic Barbie and all the also eligibles except Tailbytherail who will run.

Eighth Wildcat Gamble  Big Ruso
