Churchill Downs: Fri. scratches, news

Email

It rained again overnight, but apparently not enough to rain 'em off the grass for the 11-race twilight card that begins today at 2:45 ET. There is carryover of nearly $40k in the $2 pick 6 (races 6-11) after it crept up the last few racing days; no carry in the $1 super high five (race 11), which was cancelled yesterday after just 6 horses started.

Kind of a lull on the national scene this weekend, but Belmont news will start heating up, with Shackleford leaving here in the next couple of days; Santiva works here Sat. a.m.; and Nehro works here Mon. a.m. Stay tuned.

Have taken the liberty of pasting in the scratches and changes from the CD website . . . good luck today and thru the Memorial Day weekend.
