Mazel Trick, currently fourth among North America's second-crop sires, will stand in Pennsylvania in 2005. A 9-year-old son of Phone Trick, Mazel Trick will move to Reigle Heir Farm in Grantville, Pa., where his 2005 fee will be $5,000, down from his 2004 fee of $12,500 in Kentucky. . . . Purses at Calder Race Course have been increased $1,000 per race effective with Thursday's 11-race Thanksgiving Day program. The change, which does not effect stakes races, is the result of conservative purse-account management at the beginning of the meet, as well as an 18 percent increase in the average handle on full-card simulcasting imports.
