Bluegrass Angus making first start of year


VANCOUVER, B.C. – Bluegrass Angus makes his 4-year-old debut in an optional $50,000 claiming race at Hastings on Sunday. Last year’s local sophomore champ hasn’t started since he went unplaced in the $100,000 Perryville at Keeneland on Oct. 31, but trainer Craig MacPherson is expecting a strong performance in the 6 1/2-furlong sprint that drew eight horses.
