With the opening weekend featuring all sprint races, Nelson won astride Harbour Gold, Onestaratatime, Eustacia and Doc.
Nelson registered a solitary win the following day when he won with Casa Cat, who raced six furlongs in 1:11.98.
That same day also proved a good one for Quincy Welch, who matched his opening night’s brace with another pair of wins. (LY)
