Filly takes 'Charge' in Delta Downs Princess

Willis D. Horton's Take Charge Brandi chased a fast pace but would not be denied on Saturday while making her first start since taking the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies on November 1.

Just three weeks after that contest, trainer D. Wayne Lukas saddled the Giant's Causeway filly to a 1 1/2-length victory in the Grade 3, $400,000 Delta Downs Princess, helping to cement her case for an Eclipse Award as the 2014 champion two-year-old filly. She also earned another 10 points toward a starting berth in the Kentucky Oaks as the Princess is part of the Road to the Kentucky Oaks series of points races.

"We don't have a vote because we're a bit prejudiced," Lukas quipped when asked about the Eclipse Awards in the post-race interview. "It sure moved us in the right direction."

The Princess bumped Take Charge Brandi's lifetime earnings to $1,410,126, and her scorecard now stands at 7-3-1-0. Bred by Charming Syndicate, she's more than earned back her $435,000 purchase price as a Keeneland September yearling and could add to her bankroll in December.

Lukas mentioned after the race he is looking at possibly running her back in the Grade 1, $350,000 Starlet at Los Alamitos on December 13.

Jockey Paco Lopez settled Take Charge Brandi just outside of early pacesetter Vivian Da Bling through blistering splits of :22 1/5 and :46 2/5 on Saturday. The early leader couldn't maintain her momentum after those sizzling fractions and faded nearing the final turf, but Take Charge Brandi was still going strong.

Meanwhile, Skipalute rallied from just off the pace to engage Take Charge Brandi around the turn, but could not keep pace as the Kentucky-bred pulled away in the lane to finish a mile on the fast Delta Downs dirt in 1:39 3/5.

"Her class carried her," Lukas asserted, adding that his filly really hadn't taken to the Delta Downs track leading up to the race.

Take Charge Brandi was the 2-1 favorite and returned $6.40 for just her third career score on Saturday. After breaking her maiden at Churchill Downs on June 22, the chestnut juvenile made her stakes bow a runner-up effort in the Grade 3 Schuylerville at Saratoga. She was unable to reach the top four, losing by double digits each time, in her next three before upsetting the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies at 61-1 in a wire job.

Take Charge Brandi is out of the Seeking the Gold mare Charming, who is a half-sister to champion Will Take Charge and Grade 1 hero Take Charge Indy. Her second dam is multiple Grade 1-winning multi-millionaire Take Charge Lady.

Strike Charmer takes wing in Cardinal

Strike Charmer could be a harbinger of better things to come for trainer David Carroll (Churchill Downs/Reed Palmer Photography)
Courtlandt Farms' homebred Strike Charmer couldn't catch I'm Already Sexy in her stakes debut in the Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf, but it was a different story in Saturday's Grade 3, $119,700 Cardinal Handicap at Churchill Downs. Rallying in upper stretch, Strike Charmer stormed past the 8-5 favorite en route to a two-length victory. The 12-1 chance topped a longshot trifecta, rounded out by 19-1 Pappascat and 55-1 Antonia Autumn. I'm Already Sexy faded to fourth.

The David Carroll-trained Strike Charmer was reserved in fourth early by Chris Landeros. As expected, I'm Already Sexy took up her front-running role and opened up through splits of :23 4/5 and :47 3/5 on the good turf. The stalking Pappascat crept closer, but I'm Already Sexy appeared to have more in reserve as she pulled away again at the six-furlong mark in 1:13. By that point, Strike Charmer was making good headway along the hedge. Tipping out to take aim on the longtime leader turning into the lane, she disposed of the favorite remarkably quickly and put the race away.

"It's been a tough year," said Carroll, who had won only 11 races from 81 starts this year before the Cardinal. "Mr. (Don) Adam has been a good, patient owner. We really needed that.

"(After her runner-up effort at Kentucky Downs September 13), we put her away and got her ready for the Cardinal. That's what we did so I've got to give (Adam) a lot of credit because I would have run her at Keeneland. She was feeling so good over the last month. I got a terrific ride from Chris. I'm so happy for Chris because he does a lot of work for us here at the barn. Hopefully this is a sign that things will get a lot better."

After negotiating 1 1/8 miles in 1:49 4/5, Strike Charmer sparked a $26.60 win mutuel. Pappascat hung on gamely for second from the late-running Antonia Autumn, half-sister to three-time Eclipse Award winner Gio Ponti. The exotics therefore ballooned to $421.80 (exacta), $14,876.80 (trifecta) and $109,403.40 (superfecta) with I'm Already Sexy fourth in the 14-distaffer field.

The Kentucky-bred Strike Charmer improved her record to 10-3-3-1, $206,835. All three of her wins have come over this course and nine-furlong distance -- her maiden score as a sophomore in the summer of 2013, an entry-level allowance May 25 and now her first stakes coup.

By Smart Strike, Strike Charmer is a half-sister to multiple Canadian stakes-placed Sweet Dreams. They are out of the stakes-winning, Grade 2-placed Storm Cat mare Cat Charmer, herself a half-sister to Impeachment, the third-place finisher in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness in 2000. Strike Charmer's third dam is the influential Stick to Beauty.

Lubash passes $1 million earnings mark in Tropical Turf

Lubash reeled in Reporting Star in deep stretch (Leslie Martin/Coglianese Photography)

Aliyu Ben J Stables' homebred Lubash closed fast to overhaul Reporting Star in Saturday's Grade 3, $100,000 Tropical Turf H. at Gulfstream Park West, pushing his career earnings past the $1 million mark ($1,010,599) with the half-length victory. Brice Blanc was up on the Christophe Clement-trained turf specialist and the seven-year-old horse recorded his second graded win, and eighth overall stakes triumph, when completing 1 1/8 miles in 1:50 3/5 on the good ground.

A bay son of Freud, Lubash settled off the early pace in fourth as Reporting Star established opening splits of :24 1/5 and :50 1/5 on a clear lead. The pacesetter came under pressure on the far turn, reaching the six-furlong mark in 1:14 3/5, but kicked clear again after turning for home.

Nearly five lengths back leaving the far turn, Lubash responded to the urgings of Blanc in the stretch drive, rallying boldly late to prevail as the 8-5 favorite. He returned a $5.40 win mutuel.

"(Clement) told me to just be patient because he's got a great turn of foot, so just try to follow a good path," Blanc said. "Pretty much, that's how it came up. I got around the turn and I was riding between horses.

"I followed a couple of the horses in front of me and eased out, and when I straightened away he just kicked for me right away."

"He's a fun horse because he really, really wants to win," the trainer added. "He always runs a good race and makes me look good. I like that."

Reporting Star, the 6-1 fourth choice, easily held second, 1 1/2 lengths better than 15-1 Grand Tito in third. Grade 1 winner Lochte came next in fourth.

The New York-bred Lubash captured the Grade 3 Fort Marcy in 2013 and won a couple of open events in 2010, but four of his stakes tallies have come against state-bred foes, including his only previous one in 2014, a repeat score in the September 14 Ashley T. Cole. He improved his career record to 39-12-9-4.

Lubash is out of the stakes-placed Cure the Blues mare Nasty Cure.

Daring Kathy gives namesake a 'charming' birthday

Daring Kathy sailed home in the My Charmer (Leslie Martin/Adam Coglianese Photography)

John Eaton and Steve Laymon's homebred Daring Kathy lulled her rivals to sleep with pedestrian fractions in Saturday's Grade 3, $115,000 My Charmer Handicap at Gulfstream Park West, leaving herself with more than enough to win the nine-furlong, good turf contest under jockey Abdiel Jaen.

In doing so, Daring Kathy gave her namesake a day to remember.

"Being named Kathy, after me, and winning on my birthday today. This was the perfect birthday present," grinned Kathy Eaton, wife of co-owner John Eaton.

Jaen and Daring Kathy loped along over the visibly battered turf through fractions of :24 4/5, :51 4/5, 1:16 1/5 and 1:40 1/5, opened up in the lane and easily held the rallying Cushion on the wire to stop the clock in 1:52 3/5. Lilbourne Eliza just missed second by a nose after stalking in that spot for much of the race.

"We weren't running this morning," trainer David Fawkes stated. "But we got the opportunity to go out there and look at the turf course, and the turf course looked in great shape and I think it helped us a lot. We had an opportunity to walk out there and look at it. Billy (Badgett) was nice enough to take us out there and show us the turf course, and it was the reason we raced.

"We wanted to see how soft it was. Really, it was in very good shape. For all the rain we had, they really did a very good job on the turf course.

"(Jaen) rode her perfect. Even the fractions were almost exactly the same," Fawkes added. "When I saw them go in almost :25 and then the :51 and change, I was like 'Oh my God. It's over.' He hadn't even asked her to do anything. She did everything he asked the whole race."

"It was easy for me. She controlled the race. There was no speed and I went for it," Jaen explained. "Right here in Florida, this is the best filly I've ridden. She gives me so much confidence."

Daring Kathy was sent off the 9-2 fourth choice and paid $11.80 for her second straight stakes score over the course. The sophomore daughter of Wildcat Heir posted a similar wire job when taking the the Cellars Shiraz on October 14 by 3 1/4 lengths in a good prep for the My Charmer. Prior to that, the bay miss ran third in both the Grade 2 Lake George at Saratoga and Grade 3 Ontario Colleen at Woodbine.

"We might wait for the Florida Millions," Fawkes said "We'll just see how she comes out of it. There's like three more races coming between here and the Florida Millions. Then there's a race later on in the year after that."

Those two races followed three straight wins, including the Honey Ryder and Starfish Bay Stakes at Gulfstream Park, recorded by Daring Kathy in the spring. Saturday's score boosted her mark to 6-0-2 from nine career starts and $356,366 in lifetime earnings.

Daring Kathy is out of the Kingmambo mare Dare to Mambo, making her a half-sister to Grade 3-placed Zeb. The duo's fifth dam is 1980 Broodmare of the Year Key Bridge, who produced 1970 Horse of the Year Fort Marcy.

Honor Code cruises in Aqueduct comeback

Honor Code looks primed to regain his place in the big leagues (NYRA/Adam Coglianese Photography)
Onetime Kentucky Derby hopeful Honor Code returned from an eight-month layoff to win Saturday's 6TH race at Aqueduct in style. Under supremely confident handling by Javier Castellano, the 9-5 favorite bided his time far off the early pace in the 6 1/2-furlong dash, closed the gap easily entering the stretch, and coasted past Maleeh to get up cozily in the final strides.

Trained by Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey for Lane's End Racing and breeder Dell Ridge Farm, Honor Code was sidelined by a suspensory injury in March. The blueblood son of A. P. Indy and the Storm Cat mare Serena's Cat first commanded attention with a scintillating, last-to-first debut at Saratoga as a juvenile. A near-miss runner-up next time in the Champagne, Honor Code stretched out successfully to 1 1/8 miles in last November's Remsen, outdueling Cairo Prince by a nose.

Various physical issues subsequently blighted his road to the Kentucky Derby. After the Remsen, Honor Code had surgery to remove an undescended testicle. He then bruised his hind ankles in training at Payson Park, causing him to miss his intended target in the Fountain of Youth. McGaughey switched him to Gulfstream Park, where he resumed training and made his sophomore bow in a March 12 allowance. No match for the razor-sharp Social Inclusion that day, Honor Code was a distant second, 10 lengths behind a track-record time of 1:40.97 for 1 1/16 miles.

Honor Code cut quite a figure in the paddock (NYRA/Adam Coglianese Photography)
Although Honor Code initially appeared fine after his worst loss, he was soon after diagnosed with a "slight tear" to the upper suspensory in his right hind leg. He did not return to the worktab for six months, and posted his first breeze back at Fair Hill September 19. The strapping dark bay rejoined McGaughey's string at Belmont Park in October, and was obviously ready to go here.

Near the back of the pack early in the allowance sprint, Honor Code had about 10 lengths to make up on pacesetter Royal Currier, who sped through fractions of :22 1/5 and :45 1/5 while prompted by Green Gratto.

Honor Code simply cruised up behind the main body of the field in the stretch, only needing a seam to deliver the knockout punch. Meanwhile, Maleeh found room on the inside to spurt clear, but Honor Code finally got a split and reeled him in under wraps. He stopped the clock in 1:17 1/5 and paid $5.70 to win. Honor Code's mark now stands at 5-3-2-0, $442,600.

Jones looking forward to Exodus' second career start at Fair Grounds

Fox Hill Farm's Exodus looks to fulfill his considerable promise and lofty pedigree when he embarks on his second outing Sunday afternoon in the 7TH race at Fair Grounds -- an open juvenile maiden going six furlongs.

By Medaglia d'Oro out of multiple Grade 1 heroine Stop Traffic, Exodus sold for $600,000 to Fox Hill principal Rick Porter at Fasig-Tipton's Saratoga Sale in August 2013.

The swift half-brother to 2013 Grade 1 Whitney Handicap winner Cross Traffic signaled his readiness with a bullet work on November 18, negotiating five furlongs in a :59 4/5.

"He's in on Sunday and he's doing very well and coming into this good," trainer Larry Jones said. "He's really coming along. He just got a little tired in that Keeneland race, which I must say kind of surprised me. I thought that once he made the lead he would go on with it, but at Keeneland you can hook up with some very good horses."

In his October 3 debut at that Lexington, Kentucky, track, the bay colt showed good speed throughout, took the lead midrace and proceeded to finish a game third, beaten 2 1/4 lengths by highly regarded Ambidextrous Alex in a sharp 1:10 2/5. The effort earned Exodus an 82 BRIS Speed figure.

With an eye on the lucrative sophomore graded stakes program that commences at Fair Grounds in January, Jones is optimistic that his charge will be up to the challenge.

"We expect him to be one of our classic contenders down here, but only time will tell," he explained. "We're pretty high on him and have a lot of expectations.

"I don't think he'll have any problem getting two turns. I have two half-sisters to him and one wants to go long and the other (allowance winner Thirteen Arrows) acts like she wants to be a little bit of a sprinter, but she's by Indian Charlie. The way he trains, he'll definitely stretch out."

With an eye on the lucrative sophomore graded stakes program that commences at Fair Grounds in January, Jones is optimistic that his charge will be up to the challenge.

"We expect him to be one of our classic contenders down here, but only time will tell," he explained. "We're pretty high on him and have a lot of expectations.

"I don't think he'll have any problem getting two turns. I have two half-sisters to him and one wants to go long and the other (allowance winner Thirteen Arrows) acts like she wants to be a little bit of a sprinter, but she's by Indian Charlie. The way he trains, he'll definitely stretch out."

Perth locals Magnifisio, Elite Belle score Group 1 coups

In Saturday's Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot in Perth, Magnifisio turned back a field that included a handful of well-credentialed sprinters and survived an inquiry to become the first Group 1 winner for her sire, Magnus.

Magnifisio bested Watermans Bay by a head, and the latter rival's rider claimed Magnifisio had cost him a winning chance with interference 100 meters into the race. Stewards ultimately decided the interference was insufficient to warrant changing the order of finish.

The remarkably consistent Magnifisio has finished off the board just twice in 12 outings over the past 12 months, and last December she kicked off a five-race win streak that encompassed three listed races and concluded with the Roma Cup May 17, where she had Saturday's Railway winner Elite Belle back in second.

Magnifisio could manage only fourth in the Beaufine on July 12, and filled the same slot behind Elite Belle in the October 25 Prince of Wales Stakes. Magnifisio once again had that rival behind her in fourth when taking the Lee Steere S. prior to this effort November 8. Saturday's race was her first tilt at Group 1 company.

Magnus, who stands at Eliza Park International, is out of Scandinavia, the second dam of unbeaten world champion sprinter Black Caviar and her four-time Group 1-winning half-brother All Too Hard (Aus). Magnus and All Too Hard, who stands at Vinery Stud, also share the same sire line, as All Too Hard is by Casino Prince, a son of Magnus's sire Flying Spur.

Also at Perth's Ascot, the veteran Western Australian mare Elite Belle pushed her earnings past the million-dollar mark while earning a first Group 1 win with a gutsy score in Saturday's Railway Stakes. Crying out for racing room while traveling worse than midpack heading into the closing stages of the race, Elite Belle and jockey William Pike at last found the opening they needed and surged to the front inside the final 200 meters.

"I'd started to watch (and get) despondent," trainer Grant Williams told Sky Racing World. "I thought we had too many horses to get through. In the corner of my eye, I saw a horse coming through. I thought, it couldn't be Willie could it?' and sure enough, it was."

Pike added of Elite Belle, "She doesn't even travel. She does it from off the bit and you have got to rely on her and trust her that she's got it. She catches you a little bit unawares but when she lets down, it's electric."

Elite Belle has made all 23 of her starts in Western Australia, and she kicked off 2014 in style with a victory in the La Trice Classic here January 1. She was not seen again until May 17, when she checked in second in the Roma Cup, and she returned two weeks later to take the Belmont Sprint over 1400 meters before adding the Hyperion over a furlong further June 14. The bay kept the streak alive with a victory in the Prince of Wales in her first outing as a six-year-old, and was fourth behind Saturday's Winterbottom victress Magnifisio in the Lee Steere in her prep for this event.

Williams said Elite Belle would move on to the Kingston Town Classic in two weeks.

In brief

Lael Stables' homebred Divining Rod (Tapit), a two-year-old out of multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire Precious Kitten (Catienus), captured his debut in front-running fashion in Friday's 5TH race at Laurel. Originally scheduled for the turf, the one-mile test was transferred to the fast main track, and the Arnaud Delacour pupil was perfectly content with the switch. Divining Rod broke on top, opened up by daylight, and maintained a 2 3/4-length advantage at the wire. Under J.D. Acosta, the 5-1 chance stopped the teletimer in 1:39. The Kentucky-bred is the third registered foal, but first starter, out of Precious Kitten, who bankrolled more than $1.9 million while landing such events as the 2007 Matriarch (G1) and John C. Mabee H (G1) and the 2008 Gamely (G1). Precious Kitten is a half-sister to champion and leading sire Kitten's Joy (El Prado), as well as multiple stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Justenuffheart (Broad Brish), herself the dam of champion Dreaming of Anna (Rahy) and Grade 2-winning sires Lewis Michael (Rahy) and Justenuffhumor (Distorted Humor)...

Trainer Mark Casse said that Queen's Plate heorine Lexie Lou (Sligo Bay), nominated to both the $300,000 Hollywood Derby (G1) on November 29 and the $300,000 Matriarch (G1) on November 30, would have a five-furlong workout Saturday morning at Del Mar under rider Corey Nakatani...

Trainer Christophe Clement informed the Del Mar racing office of his intentions to ship 2013 Del Mar Oaks (G1) winner Discreet Marq (Discreet Cat) from New York for the $300,000 Matriarch (G1) on Sunday, November 30. Discreet Marq prevailed by a half-length in the 2013 Del Mar Oaks and has raced in six subsequent Grade 1 events with runner-up finishes by narrow margins in two of them being the best results. One of those seconds came in last year's Matriarch, which the gray four-year-old filly just missed by a nose. Discreet Marq enters this year's edition off a three-length victory in the Ticonderoga S. at Belmont Park on October 18...

Churchill Downs' main track reopened Friday for the first time since Monday. The one-mile dirt oval was frozen for three days following three inches of snow in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this week. Despite the reopening, there were no recorded workouts -- just gallopers and joggers after three days of tack-walking the shedrow. Racing resumed at 12:40 p.m. (EST) Friday for a 10-race card following a two-day hiatus...

Overnight storms Thursday to Friday dropped .22 inches of rain on Del Mar, muddying up some places in the stable area but having little effect on the Polytrack main surface or the Jimmy Durante Turf Course. "If I had to list it, I'd list it as 'good,'" turf superintendent Leif Dickinson said at midmorning Friday. "Our rating system is kind of ambiguous. Our track is usually firm but today it'll probably be good. If we had gotten any more rain today, we might have considered taking some races off the turf. But with what we had, and the rails being at 24 feet, we should be good to go." Three on Friday's eight-race program and eight of 18 combined races on Saturday and Sunday were scheduled for the turf course. The Weather Channel 10-day forecast Friday morning predicted minimal chance of additional showers for the Del Mar area. Previously announced plans stated the rails on the turf course would be out to 24 feet for Friday's races, in to 18 feet on Saturday and out to 24 on Sunday. However, as a result of the rains, they will remain at 24 feet for the weekend. Plans are for the rails to be set at six feet for Thanksgiving Day, November 27, and then to zero for the final three days of the meeting. Seven of the final nine stakes of the inaugural Bing Crosby Season are scheduled for the turf in what is a continuation of Hollywood Park's fall season "Turf Festival" before that track closed last December. The Polytrack main surface lived up to its "all weather" designation. It appeared unaffected by the rain and received compliments from horsemen with workers over it early Friday morning...

The winner of Sunday's "Who's the Champ? Betting Challenge" will be awarded with a fully paid spot in the Horse Player World Series at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on March 25-28. Last week, Craig Meuter of Louisville, Kentucky, won the first prize besting a field of 67 handicappers. The "Who's the Champ? Betting Challenge" requires entrants to place mythical $2 win/place wagers on races 3-8 at Churchill Downs. The contestant with the highest bankroll at event's end is crowned the winner. The weekly grand prize includes a four-night hotel stay and $250 travel voucher. Second-place gets a $500 betting voucher and the third place-finisher receives a $250 betting voucher. Registration for this Sunday's event is 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (EST) in the Churchill Downs Lounge. It costs $35 to enter ($30 for TSC Elite members) and entrants receive an official program and meal voucher. The final "Who's the Champ? Betting Challenge" of the year will be held on closing day, Sunday, November 30...

Reserved indoor premium seating at Churchill Downs for Thanksgiving Day is nearly sold out. The only tickets that remain are in the Winn Show Place Lounge on the second floor clubhouse, which range from $26 to $60 and can include the Thanksgiving Chef's Table buffet. There are still some interior dining options left for "Black Friday" on November 28, featuring the 140th running of the $500,000 Clark H. (G1). Tickets to the Skye Terrace are $34.50, which includes the Chef's Table buffet. Also, tickets to the Matt Winn Dining Room are $15, which includes a reserved seat in the dining room plus an outdoor reserved third-floor box. Guests have the option for a buffet or to order a la carte, but a $15 minimum purchase is required. Millionaires Row 4 with a buffet ($34.50) and the Matt Winn Dining Room have availability for Stars of Tomorrow II on Saturday, November 29, and closing day on Sunday, November 30...

Del Mar will hold a craft beer and cider fest alongside its races at the seaside track on Thanksgiving Saturday, November 29. More than 100 local and international brews, along with a variety of seasonal ales and ciders, will be available throughout the day in the track's Seaside Concert area on the west end of the grandstand. DJ's will be playing tunes throughout the afternoon and gourmet food trucks also will be on site with a wide-range of offerings. Track gates open at 11 a.m. (PST) and the craft beer and cider fest will be pouring between noon and 4 p.m. There also will be a terrific racing card that afternoon -- likely topped by dual classic winner California Chrome's appearance in either the Hollywood Derby (G1) or Native Diver H. (G3) -- and Del Mar's fan favorites Cake will perform a full rock concert following the races on the Seaside Concert stage to cap off the exciting day. Admission to the racetrack is $6, and only $3 for Diamond Club card holders (a free and easy sign up for all fans). Admission to the beer fest is free. A beer tasting is $18, which includes five 7 oz. samples of the various wares. Special pre-sale discount packages are on sale through November 25 by going to https://www.dmtc.com/tickets and entering the ticket office...

Fields were set and post positions drawn Wednesday for stakes races on Saturday and Sunday, the penultimate weekend of the inaugural Bing Crosby Season at Del Mar. Thirteen were entered, including two on the also-eligible list, for Saturday's $100,000 Red Carpet H. (G3). At 1 3/8 miles on turf, the former Beverly Hills H. is the second-longest race of the meeting. Favored Appealing Cat (Successful Appeal) is the first of several horses from the stable of trainer Graham Motion likely to run in stakes before the close of the meeting on November 30. The bay mare enters the Red Carpet off a half-length third in Keeneland's 1 1/2-mile Dowager S. on October 19. The race also includes British-bred Lady Pimpernel (Sir Percy), who will be getting first-time Lasix while making her U.S. debut. On Sunday, the $100,000 Cary Grant S. attracted eight California-breds. Among those entered for the seven-furlong former On Trust S. are Big Macher (Beau Genius), winner of the Bing Crosby (G1) over the track on July 27; unbeaten multiple stakes victor Red Outlaw (Tribal Rule); and defending race winner Rousing Sermon (Lucky Pulpit). Red Outlaw is nominated for other upcoming stakes and his presence in the Cary Grant remains to be determined. "At this point we're going to look at it and decide. We're considering the ($300,000) Hollywood Derby ([G1] on November 29) and the ($250,000) Seabiscuit ([G2] on November 28) as well," trainer Peter Miller said Thursday morning. "We probably won't make a decision (about the Cary Grant) until race day on Sunday." Red Outlaw worked three furlongs over Del Mar's Polytrack Thursday morning in :37 4/5...

A field of eight heads to the post on Sunday in Woodbine's C$200,000 Kennedy Road S. (Can-G2) going six furlongs on the Polytrack. Sharp Sensation (Sharp Humor) totes the top weight of 121 pounds off a half-length victory in the Bet on Sunshine S. over Churchill Downs' main track November 1. The well-traveled four-year-old gelding recorded a neck score in the Turf Monster H. (G3) at Parx Racing and was a close third in the Woodford S. (G3) on Keeneland's grass in his prior two races. Calgary Cat (Cowtown Cat) will be looking to derail Sharp Sensation's from posting back-to-back stakes wins. The four-year-old chestnut captured the Bold Venture S. (Can-G3) on Woodbine's Polytrack before rallying to be third by a length in the Nearctic S. (Can-G2) last out on the Toronto venue's turf course. Also entered is Black Hornet (Pioneerof the Nile), runner-up from the Nearctic and third in the Bold Venture.

"Horses and Hope," the initiative created in 2008 by Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear with the Kentucky Cancer Program and the Pink Stable, will return to Churchill Downs on Sunday, November 23, in Millionaires Row 4 and Skye Terrace 5. The mission is to increase breast cancer awareness, education, screening and treatment referral among Kentucky's horse industry workers and their families. The color of pink will be scattered throughout Churchill that day, including saddle towels for the 5TH race, jockey arm bands, groom's vests, outriders, the bugler, flags, bunting and trophies for winning horse owners. To help celebrate, Churchill's Twin Spires will be bathed in pink light, as well...

Belated birthday wishes to trainer Tom Amoss, who turned 53 on Monday; trainer Steve Asmussen, who celebrated No. 49 on Tuesday; and jockey Ricardo Santana Jr., who turned 22 on Wednesday.
