Friday, Race 6 – Giant Pulpit

Saturday, Race 7 – The Craic
Ernie said: "On May 13, The Craic worked in :59.60b. He went the 1st 1/4 :23.80, 3/8 in :35.40 and home in :24.20. Very quick work and the last horse to work just before the harrow break on a cool morning track rated 2.5 slower track. Easy maintenance move followed this work."
