The 2016 Triple Crown may be in the books, but there are many other big race events still to come this year.
One of those is a new Mid Atlantic Day event at Pimlico Saturday June 25th featuring 5 stakes races! Three of them are $60,000 stakes for registered Virginia-breds — the Edward P. Evans, Nellie Mae Cox and White Oak Farm — and the other pair are $75,000 stakes for registered Maryland-breds — The Find and All Brandy.
Nominations closed yesterday and response was great. The Edward P. Evans, for 3 year olds & up at 1 1/16th miles on turf, drew 37 nominations. Some of the big names and earners include Rose Brier ($386,726), Middleburg ($429,760), Dannhauser ($312,762), Two Notch Road ($361,433), Just Call Kenny ($291,735), One Go All Go ($285,085) and Lawyer Dave ($304,982) among others
