The complexion of Saturday's $256,000 Armbro Flight Final has changed substantially with the scratch of one mare that will open the door for locally-based Dream Together to compete.
Trot Insider has learned that Dream Together will line up from post position nine after the scratch of Plunge Blue Chip. Randy Waples has been listed to drive Dream Together, who finished sixth in her elim. She's winless in four outings this year for trainer Luc Blais and owner Determination of Montreal, Que.
Plunge Blue Chip made her four-year-old debut last week for trainer-driver-owner Ake Svanstedt and co-owners Blue Chip Bloodstock Inc. and Tomas Andersson. She finished second to Atlanta, the morning line favourite in Saturday's race, while individually timed in 1:52.2. Despite the nine hole she was listed at 8-1, co-fourth choice on the morning line.
