Race 1-- Maiden
In a relatively small turnout, the favorite is My Juliet who is an experianced racer and should take advantage of that in todays race on a muddy track. And they're in the gate...And they're off! SF Ciy Skyline breaks half a beat late and the race is quickly a match one. Lyra is moving steadily on the inside, with My Juliet struggling to get a lead. With a furlong to go, Lyra switches leads and makes a final effort to get a nose in front. But no ! My Juliet the winner!

Race 2-- Maiden
Seven nice looking colts line up for this two year old maiden. The favorite is Gust O'Wind's Raise A Miner. The horses are in, with Raz Ma Taz giving some resistance but finely settled. And off they go...Backstreet straight to the front and Chasin Wimmin pulls even with him outside. Third is Raz Ma Taz and following are After The Dark, SF City Limit, Archangel, and Raise A Miner trailing. At the top of the stretch! Raise A Miner making his move, going 4 wide! But After The Dark is sprinting up too, pushing through by the rail! It's going to be a tight one...can the two front running colts keep up this blistering pace? Wait! After the Dark has been bumped by Backstreet...Chasin Wimmin under the wire first, followed by Raise A Miner, After The Dark, and Backstreet. Raz Ma Taz is hobbling, there's a chance he was injured in the bumping by these young green colts.

But the horses in this tiny field have more talent in their hoof then most horses do at all....they're loading...and They're off! Triple Sec bounds out in front, SOS Darth Bane settling behind on the rail. RHR finds his stride and stays a length back. Tightly packed as they round the turn...and into the stretc!

Race 10--Trick Or Treat Stakes(gr.I)
The highlight of the racecard is here! Six top turfers line up, all looking fit and ready. Halloween was a late stratch. His trainer says the colt wouldn't handle the surface--the muddy track is now listed as sloppy. Master Zingeye, leading turf male, is now left to dominate the field. They're in and off. (ARS) Seattle Storm trips coming out ad bumps SSF Rhythem. Blendid and (ARS) Bold Risk both have clean breaks, but not as sharpy as Master Zingeye. He draws off by one, now two lengths! Bold Risk and Blendid struggle on the rail, now the slowest part of the track. Settled, the colts move around the last turn and into the stretch...Master Zingeye is *still* moving away! Bounding through the muck like it's nothing, this colt now has 9 lengths on the others! Blendid fades slightly leaving (ARS) Bold Risk to take second...
