Calder: Tough way to start the day


They didn't leave much to play in the opener after the two morning line favorites, El Homre Grande and first time starter Fortunate Bill were both scratched from the opener leaving Peccadillo's Sword as the current even money favorite against a bad bunch of bottom level, 2-year-old maiden claimers. The main track, as predicted earlier, will open as "good" but could be upgraded to fast before too long. As mentioned earlier as well, there is no turf racing today.
