Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Aqueduct 8 on the free page. Bypassing the top two morning-line faves in Santa Anita 8, going instead with #6 La Force, #10 Miss Sugars. Conditions for Arcadia, Calif., this afternoon: the track is fast, the turf course is firm, the temperature is 75°F, the UV Index is 3 and spray-tans are frowned upon. Thank you.

Yesterday’s Activity:

Track (Win Mutuels $20+/Gettable)

Chas. Town (3/2) — Race 6 was contentious, but only High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads could take the spoonful of sugar offered by Mary Boppins, 82 on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis; she was a stalking-horse throughout, winning by 3 parts of a length at $25.20. In Race 8, also contentious, again it was left for the High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads to take in Cat Come Home, a fine 90 on the LifeLiner Speed Column analysis; he rallied like the champion he should have been, winning by a clean neck at $31.20. Good work.

Delta (1/0) — 3 accused of stealing purse (read: handbag) from Vinton home at gunpoint.

Gulf (2/0) — Host Panthers lose to Toronto in shootout, 3-2; Jonathan Marchessault and Vincent Trocheck were the Fla. goalscorers.

Mahoning (0/0) — Car flipped on its side in Boardman; its driver arrested for alcohol suspicion.

PennNat (1/0) — Visiting Flyers doubled-up in St. Louis, 6-3; Wayne Simmonds had a goal (his 17th on the season) and an assist for Philalala.

Sunland (1/0) — Wind rips roof off Vado home.

Tampa (3/0) — Host Lightning edge Montreal in OT, 4-3; Tyler Johnson’s 11th goal of the season was the gamewinner.

Turfway (0/0) — Fire damages Falmouth church.

Turf Paradise (1/0) — Visiting Suns ripped by San Antonio, 119-98; TJ Warren was Phoenix’s leading scorer, with 23 pts.
