Mohegan Max

Race fans are in for a real treat today. Not only should they be able to enjoy some fine summer-like weather and have a chance to spy Max himself trackside, but fans will get to see some of the top pacers and drivers in the country when the Max C. Hemp Memorial goes off. Max likes Sheer Desire and is going to drop $5 across the board from the imaginary bankroll on him. Max will also go with $5 across the board on his best bet Escape Way in the 12th and $5 across the board on his longest shot of the night Kissi’s Maryjane in the ninth. Good luck, everyone. Post time: 1 p.m.
