Over at Picks and Ponderings, we have race previews for both home and away.
On the local front, both Paul Mazur and I take a look at the stakes race on today’s Hawthorne card: the Pat Whitworth Illinois Debutante. It drew a field of ten Illinois-bred juvenile fillies going two turns on dirt.
Farther afield, we also take a look at opening day at Gulfstream Park. Today is the Claiming Crown, and we are here with you through a day of full starter stakes fields.
