Fair Grounds: Monday conditions, Sour up next


Fast and off turf
Clear, 66 degrees. North wind (cross) 6-10 mph

Track seems average to slightly slow after two races. Speed held at 54-1 in the opener, a low-level claiming route won by Againstallides, while up-the-fence stalker Savage Man took race 2, in which favored Jumpin for Jason had one of the meet's worst trips.

Up next in race 3 is promising maiden Sour. He was a solid second behind Machen in their common career debut, and Machen came back with an impressive score yesterday.
