Around the Track

The race for the leading trainer title is still tight at the top. Heading into Friday’s Starlight action, Brad Cox led by a single win over Joe Sharp 42-41. With just eight days left in the season, look for both conditioners emptying their barns trying to get the needed trips to the winner’s circle.

Best Bet

Our Best Bet today will be in Race 10: Don’taskDon’ttell. ... Looked like a winner in the last but ran into some traffic in the stretch. Good luck and may they all come home safely.
