Carter Next Target for Caleb's Posse

Caleb's Posse, who made up a staggering amount of ground in the stretch to finish second by a neck to Calibrachoa in the Grade 3, $200,000 Tom Fool presented by Corona Extra, came out of the race in excellent shape.

"He came out of the race really well and cleaned up all his feed," said Kristal Campbell, assistant trainer to Donnie Von Hemel. "He's still ornery and raring to go."

According to Campbell, the multiple Grade 1-winning 4-year-old son of Posse will spend a few days at a farm in Kentucky before heading to Oaklawn Park to resume training. His next target is a rematch with Calibrachoa in the Grade 1 Carter Handicap.

Owned by McNeil Stables and Cheyenne Stables, Caleb's Posse ran a 110 Beyer Speed Figure for his Tom Fool effort, one point below the career best 111 he ran in winning last year's Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile.
