Arlington (0/0) — Ill. delegate booted from RNC for racially charged FB post.
Belterra (1/1) — The opener was not contentious, but High-Octane Chancers saw the field-best 81 on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis on Rose Basket; she went gate-to-wire to win by a clean half-length at $54.20. Good work.

She went gate-to-wire somehow, winning by 1¼ at $21.80. Good work.
