Hawthorne Derby Update

The field for the Grade 3 $250,000 Hawthorne Derby is taking shape. Probables include: Fan Club's Mister, Kalu, Moomtaz, Proud Man, Rahy's Secret, True Concern, and Volponi. Also listed as possible are Eighth Avenue and Lil Mephistopheles.

Under the "never overlook a gift horse" category

It's common knowledge that trainer Mike Reavis wins with a high percentage of those he has just claimed so, of course, everybody bet his Rapidrunstheriver. Right? Not.

Rapidrunstheriver, the 3-1 third choice in the morning line in Tuesday's fifth race, appeared to be pretty weary in the stretch but he managed to hang on and pay $58.40 to win, making him the highest-priced victor so far this meet.

Waiting for the babies

Glenbriar Girl, who scratched from Tuesday's third race, is a three-quarter sister to 2000 Illinois Champion Two-Year-Old and 2000 Illinois Horse of the Year, Two Item Limit. Reportedly, Glenbriar Girl outworked Lil' Mary's Kitty who demolished the field in her debut race, winning by 14 lengths.

Two Item Limit, by the way, is scheduled to compete in the Black Eyed Susan at Pimlico a week from Saturday.

$100,000 Pick 6

The Pick 6 was hit on Tuesday. Two winning tickets paid $45,532.00 each.

Turf Racing

The turf rail moves back to rail lane one following Tuesday's races and the distances will change from the "about" designation to true distance.
