Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $32,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Bench Beauty – Amazing run last time to rally from last to fourth; gets more ground to work with tonight.

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $22,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 2-year-olds

6 Yankee Dan – Big barn switch to Jeff Mullins; he has been too quiet of late, you need the stock to win races.
