Calder: Track condition in dispute

Email

A heavy but brief shower struck as the horses were in the post parade for the second race, prompting management to change the track condition to good for the main course as well as the turf. The Equibase chart crew, however, is keeping the main track fast which seems like a more logical assessment. Their decision on the grass will come after the seventh event, the first of today's two scheduled inner course events.  Meanwhile speed won each of the first two races on the card, Talk of the Night in the opener and County Gun in the second, the latter holding off the 4-5 Cubavera who altered course in behind the winner in late stretch.
