Cal Expo: Goudreau, Gordon Eliminations headline card
Goudreau, Gordon Eliminations headline card
Two divisions of the Robert Gordon eliminations and two divisions of the Shelly Goudreau elminations get the marquee treatment on Saturday night’s Watch and Wager LLC program at Cal Expo.
There are 11 races on tap with first post set for 6:10 p.m.
The Gordon eliminations will go as the third and fifth events on the evening, while the Goudreau eliminations will occupy the 6th and 9th-race slots on the card.
The top five finishers from each of these heats will advance to next week’s respective finals, named for two legends in California harness racing.
He Grins Again and West for Gold finished one-two last weekend in a solid mile and go in separate divisions of the Gordon. The former is a 3-year-old son of Place To Be who races for George Reider and Dave, Rob and Kimberly Haness with Reider training and Steve Wiseman guiding and will be gunning for his third straight trip to the charmed enclosure.
Finishing just a neck in his wake last week was West For Gold, who goes about his business for Santiago Quintana with Edwin Quevado doing the conditioning and Mooney Svendsen once again handling the lines. He recorded a 1:53 4/5 lifetime-best victory here on November 24.
There are two wagers that are offered here each night that come with a reduced 16 percent takeout rate. They are the 50-cent Pick 5, which is decided on the first five races on the evening; and the 20-cent Pick 4, on the penultimate four races. The Pick 4 comes with a guaranteed gross pool of $30,000.
