Sunset Racing, no turf, huge carryover

Things will get started a bit later today as first post at Belmont is 3:00 PM EDT and a decent card looms even despite what will be a host of scratches thanks to all turf races being moved to the main track.  Click here for analysis on Friday’s Belmont card.

Churchill Downs will run the first night card in the history of the illustrious racetrack with first post slated for 6:00 PM EDT.  The middle Pick 4 (Races 4-7) will have a guaranteed pool of $100,000 and a $.50 minimum.  The racing at Churchill should end right about the time that the Pick 6 begins at Hollywood Park.  There’s a massive carryover of better than $522,000 and you can bet a great deal will be put into the pool thanks to it being a Friday night.

I’ll be back later with a look at the Hollywood Pick 6 and any thoughts on the first ever Churchill Downs night program.
