Chalky start


Liberty St. Outlaw bounced back from a dull effort in his local debut to register a popular victory in the opener. My confidence in picking him off the poor effort buoyed by the fact he outworked stakes winning stablemate Romacaca here last week.

Rhythm In May got pounded in the doubles and went postward the 2-1 favorite in the 2nd race but disappointed, finishing a bad fourth behind 20-1 shots Bark Scorpion and Include Traci. 

Speaking of double payoffs, why is management posting probably double payoffs in $1 increments and exacta's in $2 increments?  Horseplayers are confused enough without adding this to the equation.
