Around the Track

Good Saturday card with hopes of good weather lasting through the entirety. Please pay attention to the “moved to main track” selections if rain moves the turf races to the main dirt track. Brad Grady, whose horses are trained mostly by Joe Sharp, is the leading owner by races won at the Fair Grounds so far this meet. Grady has eight wins going into Saturday’s card.
