Stop us if you've heard this before: It's hot here. High temps in the mid-90s await the meat of the 11-race Saturday card today, one anchored by back-to-back G3 $100k stakes, the Dogwood (race 9) and Arisitides (race 10).

No carryovers in either the $2 pick 6 (races 6-11) nor the $1 super high 5 (race 11) after both were hit for small potatoes at the end of the twilight card last evening.

Fast track, firm turf (no rail), first post 12:45, with the co-features going at about 5 and 5:30, respectively. Here follow the pasted-in early changes from the CD website. Good luck today.
