Eddie Read Trio to Pacific Classic?

Impressive Eddie Read winner The Usual Q.T. and third- and fourth-place finishers Enriched and Crowded House could well show up next in Del Mar's seasonal signature race, the Grade I, $1-million Pacific Classic on Saturday, August 28.

 

That's what trainers Jim Cassidy, Doug O'Neill and Ben Cecil, respectively, indicated Sunday morning. All of their horses were reported in fine fettle this morning. In fact, O'Neill was so enthused about Enriched's condition he said, "We may just wheel him back in the San Diego [Handicap] on Saturday.


Both O'Neill and Cecil, who has taken over the training of the English-bred Crowded House from Briton Brian Meehan, are pretty well set on the Pacific Classic, while Cassidy says he will consider the Arlington Million on the turf at Arlington Park on Saturday, August 21, the Del Mar Handicap on the turf on Sunday August 29 and the Pacific Classic for his 4-year-old superstar, who now has won eight of 15 lifetime starts.

 

Eoin Harty said he will keep his Read runner-up, Victor's Cry, on the grass and is considering the Grade II, $200,000 Del Mar Handicap at 1 3/8 miles.
