The Boys in the Backroom note the random irony of today’s entry on their “Word of the Day” desk calendar: “sandbag”. Really!

You can’t make it up any better than that. Stay safe, los amigos de las carreras!

Free ones: Rundown…

Saratoga Race Course 8, 10, 12
Calder 7, 8, 11
Del Mar Thoroughbred Club 4, 6, 9

Good cards, but was actually expecting slightly better, even. Impossible to please!

Pay-side: Rundown…

MonmouthRiverGolden Gate 1, 6, 9
Woodbine 2, 8, 10
Ellis 4, 7, 8
Arlington 7, 8, 10
Louisiana 1, 4, 5
Remington 1, 5, 8

Continued excellent at Arlington Hts., Ill. Ditto Oklahoma City, Okla.

WMF Report: It’s been speedy at both of the listed Fairmount distances for quite a while now.

Assiniboia 6f
Canterbury 5½f
Delpark 6f
Ellis 6f
Emerald 6f
Fairmount 6f, 1m
Golden Gate 6f
Louisiana 6f
Monmouth 6f
Northlands 6½f
River 5½f
Suffolk 6f

Del Mar 1 1/16m (T) (WMF 16)
Woodbine 7f (WMF 14), 1 1/16m (Honourable Mention, WMF 26)

Nocturnal Submission: How ’bout that seventh at Albuquerque (5:48 p.m. EDT / 2:48 p.m. PDT)? #7 Cocktailsforfatman can make it a happy hour, eh? …Columbus Race 2 (7:56 / 4:56) can yield a surprise via #8 Benjamin E. …In Evangeline’s eighth (9:49 / 6:49), #10 Farewell Broadway looks to be a showstopper — as for win and place, well…

Thank you. Bye-bye.
