6/23: Churchill Downs (P5); Santa Anita ($160k C/O)

Please take a moment today to pay respects to Shantel Lanerie who was taken by cancer Friday at 42. She was valiant in her fight and leaves anguished family and friends heartbroken. Our collective love and sympathy to Corey and especially 10yo Brittlyn..
