Artie in the Park seeks better luck in Two Year Old Sales Stakes


Artie in the Park lost by more than six lengths in the $51,000 Edmonton Juvenile on July 26, but he might have won the six-furlong race for 2-year-olds had he not been forced to check sharply when he was making a strong move along the rail in midstretch. Trainer Tim Rycroft is hoping for a better trip when Artie in the Park runs in the colts and geldings division of the $50,000 Two Year Old Sales Stakes at Northlands Saturday. Rycroft also has an excellent chance of winning the fillies division with Shanali. Both races will be run at 6 1/2 furlongs.
