The opening Pick 5 sequence, which offers a carryover provision, concludes in Race 5 with the Grade 3, $150,000 Distaff Handicap led by returning Grade 1-winner Search Results.

The middle Pick 5, which offers a mandatory payout, begins in Race 4 [2:29 p.m.] with a field of nine fillies and mares 3-years-old and up battling 1 1/16-miles in an outer turf allowance. The middle Pick 5 sequence is bolstered by the Grade 3 Distaff Handicap, the $100,000 Danger’s Hour at one mile over the inner turf in Race 7, and ends in Race 8 with the featured Grade 2, $750,000 Wood Memorial presented by Resorts World Casino which is headlined by undefeated graded stakes winners Early Voting and Morello.
