Longboat Key, With Council to duel in marathon Starter Handicap


Horses will go around six turns and take roughly 3 1/2 minutes to run two miles in the final leg of the Starter Handicap Series at Northlands Park on Saturday. The marathon, for horses who have started for a claiming price of $8,000 or less in 2014 and haven’t won for $12,500 since they became eligible, drew seven horses. It headlines an eight-race card that begins at 1 p.m. Mountain.
