BC Turf Sprint for Caracortado?

Caracortado captures the 2010 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita
It’s on to the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint for Caracortado, but plans for Chips All In were still on hold after his game nose victory in Friday’s Eddie D. Stakes in which Caracortado finished fourth, beaten only a length, in his first start since Jan. 8, 2012.

“He came out good so far,” trainer Jeff Mullins said of Chips All In early Saturday morning, adding, “Not yet,” when asked if a decision had been reached by his owners on whether to supplement the bay colt to the Breeders’ Cup race at Santa Anita on Nov. 2. The cost, according to Mullins, would be $120,000.

Trainer, breeder and part owner of Caracortado Mike Machowsky, meanwhile, was pleased and relieved with Caracortado’s performance after the rags-to-riches California-bred gelding returned to the races following a nagging ailment to his right front hoof that kept him out for nearly two years.

“He came back really good and the plan is to go on to the Breeders’ Cup,” Machowsky said. “The hoof looks like a million bucks this morning. He nicked himself a little on one leg, but no big deal.

“He got a little rank and got in a little tight at the three-eighths (pole) or whatever, but for being off that long, he ran huge.”
