UPDATE:  Here's a list of the under card winners today at Churchill for races on the dirt and their position after ½ mile:

Race 1, 1 1/16 miles: Stay Put (4th)
Race 2, 1 mile: Zimmer (1st)
Race 3, 1 1/16 miles: Sheryl's Melody (3rd)
Race 4, 6 furlongs: Wise Dan (5th)

Race 6, 7 ½ furlongs: Buckleupbuttercup (4th)

The only two wire-to-wire winners were ridden by Calvin Borel, and he's the only one that's been able to win on the rail (of course).
