Baze Wins Second Aboard Frisco Fox in Glass Slipper

Setting in motion boxcar payoffs, Russell Baze wins his second Claiming Crown race aboard 11-1 Frisco Fox. Margie Marie sprung the gate quickly and blistered fractions of :21.1 (yup, twenty one) and :44.2. She obviously couldn't keep those fractions up and Baze blew by here in early stretch and lengthened the lead all the way to the wire. Local closer Thunder and Belle was up for 2nd and 70-1 shot Cassie D keyed huge payoffs in the $1 trifecta and superfecta payoffs of $3,476 and $13,453, respectively. Baze has keyed some nice win payoffs today and it has been all the invaders all day today with the local jocks shut out of the winner's circle so far.

My choice and the favorite Met A Miner was slowed through the stretch and jogged across the finish. Obviously Josue Arce felt something underneath him he didn't like and erred on the side of caution.
