2 Fit to Rule - Won the final race of the NHC tourney; if he’d paid $1.20 more to win and place, he’d of changed history.

Race 4 - 1 mile, Purse $21,000, Claiming $12,500, 4-year-olds and up

2 Twin Six - Big rider switch to Chantal Sutherland-Kruse; she figures to put this one of the lead and nurse him along.

Race 7 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 3-year-olds
