They will. But dont worry Saturday Card looks fairly chalky so be another big carryover during the weekdays with Whitney. Not one field with 12 on Whitney day. They doing so may AE because of rain it seems. I give them credit for that though. Monmouth will card 8 and scratch to 5 lol. Delmar even worse. They are so chalky its unreal. Carding 8 horse fields all the way thru basically. May have to pass all together Sat and hope Sunday they pay out. Lets start giving back to the horseplayer and stop worrying about the inside. Such Crap. Who wants to play a 8 horse filed where the buck exacta pays 4.80. Where is Gulfstream please come back!!!
