Block and Janks Score at Prairie State Festival

It may be as close as a sure thing as there is in horse racing that trainers Chris Block and Christine Janks will each saddle at least one winner at the Prairie State Festival.  Block, the leading conditioner in the annual Illinois-bred showcase, added two more wins to his record, which now stands at 19 victories in the series of races.  Janks, who is the second-leading trainer in the Festival, posted a victory as well.
