Final Week Of Fall Meeting To Include A 10-Race Card On Saturday

     The final week of action at Golden Gate Fields’ fall meeting will feature eight-race cards Thursday and Friday, a 10-race program Saturday, and a nine-race finale Sunday.
 
     The track has scheduled a special early post time of 12:15 p.m. for Saturday’s expanded card.  Post time is 12:45 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
 
     Hall of Famers Russell Baze and Jerry Hollendorfer head into the final four days of competition with commanding leads in the jockey and trainer standings, respectively. 
 
     Baze, who missed six of the first nine days of racing at the fall meeting due to riding suspensions he received for violations at the Big Fresno Fair, holds a 51-34 advantage in wins over Dennis Carr.  Baze has won 46 riding titles at Golden Gate Fields.
 
     Hollendorfer, owner of 44 training championships at Golden Gate Fields, leads his colleagues with 24 victories.  Steve Sherman is second with 15 wins and Victor Trujillo third with 13.  
 
      Hollendorfer will be at Betfair Hollywood Park Saturday to saddle Shared Belief and Tamarando in the Grade 1 $750,000 CashCall Futurity.  Bay Area horse racing fans saw Shared Belief break his maiden very impressively at Golden Gate Fields in his career debut on Oct. 19.  
 
      Hollywood Park will also present a 10-race card Saturday and Golden Gate Fields will simulcast the entire program.  In addition to the CashCall Futurity, the Hollywood Park card features the Grade 2 $250,000 Hollywood Turf Cup and the Grade 3 $150,000 Native Diver Stakes.  First post at Hollywood Park is 12:30 p.m.
