Long Shot – 9 Dress Code

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

6 Pocketball – Adam Kitchingman may have gotten away with one; protected today but may be fast enough to outsprint these.

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Celebrity Status – Gets class relief from the Cary Grant for this easier spot; his race two back is the one he needs to repeat.
