The Sprint – Saturday November 6th Post Time: 2:30 P.M. (EST)

The Sprint is a weight for age stakes race for Thoroughbreds age 3 and up. It is contested on a dirt track at a distance of 6 Furlongs with a total prize purse of $2,000,000. There are four automatic bids awarded from wins in a designated Challenge Race for this division and the rest of the field is determined by total points earned over the course of the racing season.

The following is a look at a few of the favorites that are expected to run this race.

Big Drama

The horse will most likely go off as the odd-on-favorite in the Sprint as he enters this race with an impressive 2010 resume. In June he took first in the non-graded $65,000 Ponche Handicap at Calder. A month later he followed that up with a huge victory in the grade II $350,000 Smile Sprint Handicap at Calder which earned him an automatic “Win and You’re In” entry into the Sprint. Big Drama finished second in the grade I $250,000 Forego Stakes at Saratoga his last time out.

Smiling Tiger

This horse earned an automatic “Win and You’re In” entry into the Sprint with a victory in the grade I $250,000 Ancient Title Stakes at Hollywood Park on Oct.9. He was able to hold off a fast-closing Supreme Summit down the stretch to win by a half-length. He also won the grade I $250,000 Bing Crosby Stakes at Del Mar back in early August.

Wise Dan

Earlier this year, he won a $21,000 Maiden Weight Special at Turfway and a $50,000 Allowance Optional Claiming race at Churchill Downs. He earned an automatic entry into the Sprint by winning the grade III $175,000 Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland. He won the race by a convincing 3 ½ lengths over Warrior’s Reward.

Supreme Summit

Impressed with his horse’s performance in a second-place finish in the Ancient Title Stakes, owner Joseph Lacombe has stated that he is willing to pay $100,000 to have him supplemented to the Sprint as well as pay the additional $60,000 in starting and entry fees. Supreme Summit has three wins this year and $233,110 in total earnings.
