Lex1 - Red Mile Day Two Evemts

The freshmen colt trotters and filly pacers take the stage for day two of the Red Mile Grand Circuit as part of a twelve race extravaganza on Friday evening.

The trotting colts split into four nine horse divisions, each for a purse of $101,000. The first of the four is carded as race two and is perhaps the most competitive with KYSS champ Mystical Dew, American National winner Longwell, PASS runner up Major Athens and the streaking Pine Credit making for a very interesting start to the night's races. 

NYSS final winner Fashion Blizzard is listed to go in race five where he'll find solid competition in Wellwood Memorial elimination winner My Man Can and recent Kindergarten leg winner Jacks To Open.

Pacing fillies split into three nines, each for $108,700 and kick off with race three. This division features the recent world record setting I Luv The Nitelife squares off with her rival from north of the border Parlee Beach and the good PA filly Donna Lee. 

The second division is race six which kicks off a Pick 4 guaranteed at a minimum of $10,000. NJSS final winner Authorize and Kentuckiana Farms division winner Carol's Desire head up an evenly matched field of nine.

In the eleventh race, Nikki Beach comes in off a win in the Kentuckiana as well and just missed in the Sweetheart this summer. South Pacific is a filly that started late but has three wins in four starts in her brief career. 

Post time is 7pm on Friday. Entries and further information is available at the Red Mile website.
