Awesome Slate, Kristofferson hard to separate in Birdcatcher


Trainer Tim Rycroft has an excellent chance of sweeping the two stakes races for juveniles at Northlands Park this weekend. On Friday, he will saddle the 1-5 morning-line favorite, Bootleggers Wife, in the $50,000 Bird of Pay for 2-year-old fillies. On Saturday, he has the two big shots with Awesome Slate and Kristofferson in the $50,000 Birdcatcher.
