Shakertown Draws Ten

A G2 event for 3 year olds and up going 5 1/2 furlongs on the weeds. This special race we have the Breeders Cup Turf Mile winner and the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint winner.

  1. General Patton trained by Threshold: Coming off an allowance race win at Tampa this horse is taking a huge step up in class and will have to improve to get his picture taken today.
  2. Arctic Circle trained by Robeth: This horse can run any distance from 5/8 to a flat mile but has not been able to find his best lick yet trying 5 1/2 today maybe will be his calling.
  3. Mojave Rattler trained by Mo Mentum Farm: After his win in the Breeders Cup Turf Mile has been very dissapointing since then. shortening up may be the key.
  4. Dominant Force trained by John Henry: Comes out of an allowance race where he won sitting just off the pace. He will have to step up today to be in the mix.
  5. Laffin Funky trained by Maxmillion Farm: If they go slow he can sit just off of them if they are cooking up top he can settle further back and make a late run. Tough horse in this race.
  6. Show Shocker trained by Maxmillion Farm: This horse is a rabbit for his stable mate. He has shown speed going a flat mile on the grass but not sure if he can find the lead against this speedy field.
  7. SCRATCHED
  8. Blurred Return trained by LionKing Stables: In 21 starts he has ran on the grass twice. This horse will be a big outsider looking in today.
  9. Gleaming Spirit trained by Mb Stables: This Breeders Cup Turf Sprint champion comes in here on a three race win streak. Also has won 7 out of his last nine races. The rest of the field might have to grow wings to catch this one.
  10. Van Wilder trained by Fractious: This horse has ran some very good numbers but I do not think this horse wants any part of 5 1/2.

Good Luck To All!
