There was just a single stake contested in the mid-Atlantic region over the weekend — and it wasn’t much of a stake after all.
The Roamin’ Rachel Stakes at Parx Racing — originally slated to comprise a solid group of older distaff sprinters — ended up being a match race after an equine herpesvirus positive on the Parx backstretch led that and other tracks to prohibit horses there from leaving the grounds.
Nevertheless, congrats to the winning connections.
