On the surface, Tempe and Scottsdale are real puzzlers


PHOENIX – The question in a pair of stakes at Turf Paradise on Saturday is one of footing. The $30,000 Tempe Handicap, for 3-year-olds, and the $30,000 Scottsdale Handicap, for 3-year-old fillies, are both at a mile on turf. The dilemma for handicappers is that the main protagonists in both events have little or no turf experience.
