Saturday Advance

Connie Matlock Memorial heads closing night

The Cal Expo meet concludes Saturday evening with Hi Ho’s Little Rev and Ragin’s Flight among the major players in the featured Connie Matlock Memorial Pace.

The headliner will go as the third on a nine-race program presented by Watch and Wager LLC and first post will be 6:40 p.m.

Hi H’s Little Rev is looking to close out the stand with a hat trick for owners Vanessa Gilliam and Audrey Clifton, trainer Bob Johnson and pilot Mooney Svendsen.

The 6-year-old son of Hi Ho Silverheel’s set a new lifetime mark of 1:52 25/ when he got the job done two weeks ago in a game performance, then made every pole a winning in his last tour in coast-to-coast fashion as the 3-2 favorite last Friday evening.

Ragin’s Flight should hit hard with this caliber after tackling tougher company of late. He was a 1:52 1/5 victor as the 2-5 choice back on March 30 and competes for Scott Ehrlich, George McCrystal and Kathie Plested with Plested the conditioner and Steve Wiseman in the sulky.

Completing the field are Fire On The Water from the Steve Nichols barn; Fly Away, who gives the Plested shedrow two looks at the outcome; the Robin Clements-trained Lincoln; and He Grins Again, who takes his lessons from George Reider.

This being closig night, there will be mandatory payouts in all wagers.
