Churchill: Fri. scratches; off turf

Email

It's the biggest day of the fall meet (not counting Breeders' Cup), and although the rain has stopped and the sun has emerged, it's a little late for turf racing to take place here after 2 days of soaking. It's cold, with the high only expected to reach the mid-40s, but we've still got a good day of racing here. I've taken the liberty of pasting in the early scratches and changes from the CD website.

Strictly from a personal rooting vantage point, I'm pulling for Dubious Miss and Demarcation today in the G1 Clark Handicap (race 11), both trained by my brother P.McGee, who won his first Clark 22 years ago with Balthazar B. and missed a second 5 years ago in excruciating fashion when Suave narrowly lost to Magna Graduate. It looks like a wide-open Clark today, so maybe he can get lucky.
