A law allowing the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company to sell horses and operate an inter-track wagering facility was declared unconstitutional Thursday in a unanimous vote by the Florida Supreme Court. The same law had been repealed last year by the Florida State legislature.
Six horses were entered Thursday for Sunday's $1-million Pacific Classic at Del Mar. Skimming was installed as the 8-5 favorite, followed by Futural at 9-5 odds. Captain Steve, winless since taking the Dubai World Cup, drew the outside post position as he was made the 3-1 third wagering choice.
