Kharafa heads Elkwood field


The 6-year-old Kharafa has done most of his best work in stakes restricted to New York-breds, winning three turf routes and finishing second in two other added-money events since 2013. His most recent performance and his ability to stalk what should be a hot and contested pace make him dangerous in Saturday’s $75,000 Elkwood Stakes at Monmouth Park.
