Nellie Cashman, Appealing Cat get class relief in Lyphard Stakes


A pair of horses who recorded top-three finishes in graded stakes last season but have done little or nothing at all this year take a steep drop in class to face Pennsylvania-bred fillies and mares in Friday’s $75,000 Lyphard Stakes at Penn National. A 1 1/16-mile turf race, the Lyphard goes as race 4 at 7:22 p.m. Eastern.
