Calder: Track good, no turf

Email

Happy Thanksgiving.  Overnight rain has left the main track "good" and forced the cancellation of all of today's turf racing. 

A rare occurence in the opener, a victory by trainer Wilfredo Melendez who entered the day with a 3 for 93 mark this season before sending out Sarava Star to upset a horrid bunch to kick off the holiday card.  Not such a surprise in the second with Peaceadaaction bet down like a good thing and then winning like one, easily defeating a modest field of $16,000 starter allowance types in his first start off the claim by owner-trainer Aubray Maragh.
