Email

There were two claims in Thursday's first race, including race winner Two Violins.

Two Violins ($3.20) had little trouble winning an $8,000 claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs, and was taken by Jeff Metz. Two Violins has been claimed five times since mid-August, at levels ranging from $5,000 to $8,000. He won Thursday's first race by 4 1-4 lengths.

Raingear, who finished sixth in the field of seven, was claimed in a two-way shake by Alfredo Marquez.
