CALDER: Turf Rock hard?


Not sure but one would suspect off the fractions bottom level maiden claimer Omar's Tiger posted en route to winning the third race.  Omar's Tiger went an opening quarter in :22.60 while sprinting about eight lengths clear of the field, completed six furlongs in 1:09 and change and never looked back, cruising to an easy win in his turf debut.  Returned $11.80 for apprentice Sixto Ribera and trainer Michael Yates who combined were just 9 for 134 coming into the race. 

Two-year-olds up next. Rock God has opened at 7-5 off a series of fast 3 furlong works but expecting Cheyann Belief and Frankie Say Relax to also take plenty of money before all is said and done.
