Court Vision Returns in Maker's Mark Mile

Court Vision, runner-up in last year's Maker's Mark Mile, is back for more in the 2011 renewal of the flat mile grade one turf event at Keeneland on Friday.

The six-year-old horse, trained by Rick Dutrow, packs a strong late kick when on his game. He has captured two of his last ten starts and both of those wins were in grade one turf races at one mile. He reunites with Robby Albarado in his first start in more than four months.

Turallure is an interesting contender if he is ready to rumble off the shelf for Charles Lopresti. He got very good last summer and ended his 2010 campaign with a rallying show finish in a graded turf route at Churchill Downs. Shaun Bridgmohan rides.

Workin For Hops makes his third start off the layoff for Michael Stidham and he is 2-for-2 at this distance. The four-year-old gelding is the likely target under Rosie Napravnik.

Society's Chairman rallied for the place behind red hot speedster Little Mike when last seen at Gulfstream Park on Feb 27. The 8-year-old horse finished 3rd in this event last year.

Get Stormy does some of his best work at a flat mile and finished an improved 3rd in Florida on Feb 5. He projects a decent tactical trip under regular pilot Javier Castellano.

2009 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile hero Furthest Land is back in decent form for Mike Maker. He tailed off badly last year but ran well in both of his turf starts at Gulfstream Park over the winter. He is a late running threat under Julien Leparoux.

The eight horse Maker's Mark field is completed by Zifzaf and Bim Bam.
