Turf Paradise: L. A. Weekend can turn tables in Coyote Handicap


The best sprinters on the grounds take center stage in two 6 1/2-furlong stakes at Turf Paradise on Saturday. L. A. Weekend, last year’s horse of the meet, was vanquished in this year’s Phoenix Gold Cup by Absolutely Cool and looks to exact his revenge on that foe in the $35,000 Coyote Handicap for 3-year-olds and up. Tribal Gal attempts to re-establish herself at the top of the distaff sprinting heap when she leads the $35,000 Mesa Handicap.
