Some horses with interesting conditions grace the card tonight, when the track may still show the effects of midweek rain.
In the featured fifth race, Abitofanipintheair, who has chased much better, lacks speed, but she gained her only victory on a wet track. In the fourth, Messageforthenurse ran against males in Colorado. Inspector Green, off her best Emerald Downs form, looks like a galloping winner in the sixth. And, in the finale, Valhala Warrior put up a good Beyer as a beaten favorite in his local debut.
