Muddy now.

Has all day to dry out .

Not much breeze today but it is on top of a hill.

It is always at least a little breezy there.

Overcast all day is the forecast.

Probably fast by the end of the card.

Just keep an eye on it.

As of Race 7 - POST Time - 2:07 PM Chick Lang S. 6F Dirt (Good)

Recruiting Ready went gate-to-wire

Fractional Times: 22.98 / 45.96 / 57.85 Final Time: 1:10.35


As of Race 9 Maryland Sprint S. (Grade III) - 6F Dirt (Good)

Early speed held up for a while, but Whitmore (never more than 4 lengths back) ran them down in the final 1/8th.

Fractional Times: 22.97 / 45.67 / 57.54 Final Time: 1:09.90

As of Race 11 - POST Time - 4:43 PM LARC Sir Barton S.

Early speed held up for a while (w/slow fractions), but No Mo Dough (from off the pace) ran them down in the final 1/8th to win by daylight.

Fractional Times: 23.73 / 48.53 / 113.38/ Final Time: 144.43

The Closers in the Preakness look to have a real shot, especially if there are fast early fractions.

I see it as a fair racetrack. The Pace Projector had the Sir Barton as a fast pace, although I don't know what the final pace figures are.

No offense, but if that Pace Projector considers the pace in that race as "fast", I'd hate to see what it considers as "slow".

You really don't need a pace projector to surmise the pace of that race. Just look at actual fractions!

The middle of the track seems to be the place to be. The rail not so much.
