Commute tries turf in James W. Murphy


Commute, who has faced stiff company in California this season, finds himself amid an eclectic group for the $100,000 James W. Murphy Stakes for 3-year-olds at a mile on the Pimlico turf. Three logical contenders never have won on turf or are trying the surface for the first time Saturday, while five of the eight runners have only a maiden win to their credit.
