Yesterday’s Activity:

Track (Win Mutuels $20+/Gettable)

Belmont (2/2) — Race 5 was contentious, but only High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads could take a gander at True Charm, who had a field-best 87 on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis; she went gate-to-wire to win by a clean nose at $22.80. The finale was contentious, and the Old-School Champeens were invited to take part — along with the Chancers and the Eggheads, of course — in Magsamelia, top of the V6 Betting Line at Fair Odds of 3½-1 and a Dual Qualifier (83, 83); she took over by the furlong-grounds to win by 1¾ at $21.20. Good work.

Calder (1/0) — Visiting Panthers edged by Toronto, 3-2; Jonathan Marchessault had both Florida goals.

Chas. Town (2/1) — Race 3 was not contentious, but High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads were OK with Annies Alliance, who had an acceptable number in the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis; however, she had to rally to win by 2 at $20.20. Good work.

Delta (1/1) — Chancers and Eggheads only for the contentious Race 7’s E Z’s All Attitude, who had a field-best rating on the LifeLiner Spread Column; he was not too fast early but got going in time, winning by 6¾ at $20-even. Good work.

Finger (1/0) — First snow of season falls at Bristol Mountain.

Golden Gate (0/0) — Host Sharks beat Columbus, 3-1; Tomas Hertl scored twice for San Jose.

Hawthorne (0/0) — Host Bulls win season-opener over Boston, 105-99; Dwyane Wade had 22 pts. in his Chicagoland debut.

Keeneland (1/0) — Family escapes house fire in Powell Co.

PennNat (0/0) — Host Flyers edged by Arizona, 5-4; Brayden Schenn had a goal and 2 assists for Philalala.

Remington (0/0) — New Interstate connections open for downtown OKC open Friday.

Santa Anita (0/0) — See lede.
