Today, the Downs runs its last live racing program until Thanksgiving week in November. The facility will be open daily throughout the summer. Simulcast wagering, poker, golf, food and beverage service will be available.
The last play of the season is in Race 6, three and up Fillies and Mares will sprint six and one-half furlongs under $8,000 Claiming NW2L conditions. Post time is scheduled for 2:58 PM.
WAY TO SUCCESS (8) was a good second in her local debut with similar rivals at six panels on June 1. She has had a month off and shows the best late pace in this group. The stretch out of a sixteenth of a mile (half furlong) should be to her benefit. Also, like that this four year old faces several sophomores here and may have an advantage in maturity.
THE BET $20 to win on WAY TO SUCCESS (8) and a $2 exacta box with DREAMS OF SHIRLEY (7) and BABY DRAGON (5), 5,7,8.
Total Bet $32. GOOD LUCK!!
