Surface the key factor in Owner's Day Cup, Distaff


The surface over which the $60,000 Owner’s Day Cup ends up being run Saturday night at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas, La., will distinctly favor either Potomac River or Sir Genghis. The horses are among the leading contenders in the 1 1/16-mile turf race that has a chance of being moved to the main track.
