- It's weird that Santa Anita has the dark day after opening day. It's like in baseball when they keep the day after opening day free in case of a rainout. Although, actually...I guess that could apply in this case too. Jerry Klein, writing for FOX Sports, reports:

During the last few weeks, workers at Santa Anita feverishly removed the original material and cleaned out the base while different combinations were tested on the far end of the backstretch. The new concoction passed muster in limited trials, but the big test comes when the rains return, which may be sooner rather than later. [FOX Sports]
Well, actually, rain is no longer in the forecast, so track president Ron Charles can breathe a sigh of relief. At least for now. Actually, I'd think that the sooner they find out, the better, so they can start to make other plans with the Breeders' Cup coming in the fall. And I think the BC folks would agree.

What, no Golden Hare in the 5th at Fair Grounds? While there are a few who could challenge him on speed, GH should win this one.
