Churchill: longshots in the mud?


Anybody subscribing to the "longshots in the mud" theory could well be having a big day here at Churchill, where the lights have been turned on all afternoon amid dank and dreary weather. Deputy Sreva just won the 6th race at a $91 mutuel, storming from well back under apprentice O.Rossi as the longest shot in a field of 11. In the previous race, while odds-on Cash Refund was up the track, Great Attack prevailed under Crc jock J.Sanchez as a 7-1 shot. Other earlier winners included Excitable Boy at 8-1 in the 2nd and Backside Blackie at 8-1 in the 3rd.

We're halfway thru the 12-race program, with the G2 Falls City to be run as the featured 11th. There are 21 MTP for the 7th, and Indy News (#6) is the 5-2 fave in a full field of $15k claimers going 1 1/16 miles.
