Fair Grounds: Belated Monday conditions


Main track good, off turf
Cloudy, 46 degrees
North wind (cross) 8-12 mph

Four races in the books from this off-the-turf Monday, including "featured" N2X f & m sprint allowance rained onto the main track. Trainer Josie Carroll has been entering horses left and right for this condition (both long and short), and had the right horse for this spot in Georgia Song. But who would've known? Georgia Song a $40.40 winner under Eddie Martin in great part because none of her 10 starts had come on dirt.

Georgia Song pressed pace from inside and won coming up fence, further evidence that there's no bias whatsoever to this track. Pace-pressing winner, outside stalking winner, outside closing winner from back of pack, and now inside pressing winner.
