  Fast and firm for the final day of the spring-summer meet. There is a mandatory pick-6 payout, and a carryover of $46,459 from Saturday.   Todd Pletcher leads Linda Rice 25-24, but he has no horses in today and Rice has horses in the 1st, 3rd and 9th races, including an uncoupled entry in the 3rd.   Ramon Dominguez, who rode at Delaware Park yesterday, has a 69-67 lead on Javier Castellano, who whittled the margin with four winners yesterday including the Jaipur Stakes on Right One.

  The main track is fast and the turf courses are labeled firm as the final week of the spring-summer meet gets under way.   With four days remaining, the trainer and jockey races are still very much up for grabs. Todd Pletcher has a 24-22 lead on Linda Rice. However, Rice has three runners today (after scratches), five entered tomorrow and five more Saturday. Pletcher has two in today, two tomorrow and just one Saturday.   Ramon Dominguez rode three winners Sunday to take a 64-62 lead on Javier Castellano. It's 15 back to Cornelio Velasquez in third.

  The main track is sloppy and the turf courses are labeled "good" for the second of three twilight Friday programs, with first post at 3:00 p.m. Eastern.   The 4th, 6th & 7th races have been taken off the turf; the 6th race gets a distance change to 1 1/8 miles.   The 8th & 9th races remain on the turf for now, but more rain is in the forecast. As a result, post times have been accelerated as follows: 2nd - 3:20; 3rd - 3:52; 4th - 4:18; 5th - 4:44; 6th - 5:12; 7th - 5:48; 8th - 6:08; 9th - 6:36.
