Friday program features Sire Stakes, Open Pace

Give Me This Dance, victorious in all four of her starts this season in impressive fashion, looks to add to her resume in Friday night’s featured $15,000 California Sire Stakes for the 3-year-old pacing fillies at Cal Expo.

This race will share the spotlight with a $7,000 Open Pace that finds Dancin Lance and A Major Omen among the major players.

Watch and Wager LLC will present nine races with first post set for 6:45 p.m.

Give Me This Dance is a 3-year-old daughter of Wind Me Up who is owned by Alan and Cheryl Sandbulte and is reined and trained by Nick Roland. She has been perfect in her three appearances at the meet, including the most recent Sire Stakes clash two weeks ago.

Sent off at 2-5 in that contest, the Santbulte colorbearer was used to command and then covered up at the half, found room to split rivals at midstretch and won going away by two and a half-lengths.She came back with a 1:55 3/5 score in conditioned company last week.

Wind Meup To Life earned a stakes trophy on March 4 in her debut and has was runner-up to Give Me This Dance in that last affair for the division after brushing to command on the backside and giving way grudgingly. Cordarius Stewarts will guide.

Completing the field are Toot Toot, who has the rail with James Kennedy at the helm; Cenalta Flash with Mooney Svendsen and Anotherblazinwoman for Luke Plano.
