Belladiva gets class relief in featured claimer


Belladiva looks like the one to beat in a $25,000 conditional-claiming race for fillies and mares that serves as the feature Saturday at Emerald Downs. Not counting maiden wins, the 6 1/2-furlong sprint is restricted to horses who have not won two races. It drew seven horses, and Belladiva will appreciate the class relief after running in three straight $25,000 optional-claiming races.
