Tattersalls Pace is the Main Event on Saturday

The match-up that everyone was hoping for will be the main event of the Saturday afternoon Grand Circuit card at The Red Mile with the Tattersalls Pace serving as the arena. Total purses for the twelve races are just shy of $1 million.

 

Captaintreacherous, Vegas Vacation and Sunshine Beach have all drawn into the same division, the first of two very contentious Tattersalls splits, each for a purse of $215,500.

 

At this point in the season, any superlative describing "The Captain" has been used to excess. Suffice to say he continues to impress the hard to impress and comes into Saturday's race in perhaps the best form of his career. He's been kept fresh by the schedule set by his handlers, manager Myron Bell and trainer Tony Alagna, and did virtually all the heavy lifting himself (along with his regular driver Tim Tetrick) reducing his personal best to 1:47.1 in a division of the Bluegrass stakes here last week. His seasonal slate reads nine wins in ten starts and a million and a half earned for Captaintreacherous Racing. He starts from post five.

 

Vegas Vacation has met Captain T on several occasions and come away feeling the sting of defeat in each. His resume includes The Little Brown Jug in straight heats last month among his nine wins in fifteen outings and earnings over $800,000. His camp, led by trainer Casie Coleman, are poised to hook up with the division leader for another shot at the title. The ownership reads West Wins Stable, Adriano Sorella, Anthony Beaton and Phyllis Saunders on the Bettor's delight gelding and Brian Sears will be in town for the drive from the rail on Saturday.

 

Adding to the intrigue is the only horse to finish in front of Captaintreacherous this season, Sunshine Beach, who held grimly against the Captain's long assault in the world record Battle of Brandywine in July. He sharpened up after a few idle weeks with a 1:48.2 / 26- win last week in Lexington. John Campbell has the drive for trainer Mark Steacy and owners Hudson Standardbred Stable, Conrad Leber and Diane Bertrand. He has drawn the outside post seven.

 

The second Tattersalls division is a very evenly matched field of seven, with one new shooter in New York Sires Stake final winner Fool Me Once joining six very good horses that had one over the course last week in the Bluegrass.

 

The supporting card includes two $122,500 divisions of the Glen Garnsey Memorial (Tattersalls for the ladies) and four splits of the International Stallion Stakes for freshmen pacing colts. It is a power-packed offering on the penultimate matinee card of the 2013 Grand Circuit meet at The Red Mile. Post time is 1:00pm.
