Star of the Dia could run big with a clean start


Star of the Dia is due for a little luck following back-to-back races where he was taken out of his game leaving the starting gate. With a good beginning, Star of the Dia figures to be in the mix throughout in a $25,000 conditional-claiming race that will serve as the featured race Friday at Emerald Downs. The six-furlong sprint goes as race 6, and any of the six horses entered has a reasonable chance of winning what appears to be a wide-open event.
