The Cicero Pacing Series Leg Two

Three divisions of leg two of the Cicero Pacing Series for colts and geldings will be contested Thursday (races five, seven and nine).

In race seven, Midwich Hanover, an easy leg one victor at odds of 2-5, leaves from post ten after being claimed by Julie Miller. She’ll face off with Impressive Dancer, an upset winner last week at 8-1. In race nine, Bangkok Cruiser, a game leg one winner at odds of 4-5, and the speedy Nik The Nuke, who lost a narrow decision in his initial Cicero Pacing Series try last week, will go hoof to hoof.
