Week 6 and Alabama Weekend come to a close Sunday with a 10-race card topped by the $150,000 Bolton Landing Stakes for 2-year-old fillies on the grass.

The 5 1/2-furlong Bolton Landing drew a field of six and goes early on the card, as the fourth race with a post time of 2:52 p.m. so make sure to wrap up brunch with plenty of time to spare. George Weaver looks to continue his strong meet when he sends out Colleen Stakes winner Amidst Waves, the 8-5 favorite for leading jockey Irad Ortiz Jr.

The handicappers continue to plug along and offer their picks online Sundays, Thursdays and Fridays through the end of the meet. The picks appear in the print and digital editions on The Power Grid presented by Toga Party Racing every Saturday and Wednesday.
