Shackleford All Set for Kelso

Multiple Grade 1 winners Shackleford and To Honor and Serve highlight the likely contenders for the Grade 2, $400,000 Kelso Handicap, to be contested at a mile on the main track.

 

They come off vastly different efforts. Shackleford finished a lackluster eighth in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt on August 5 at Saratoga. Using the race as a  prep for the Grade 1 Forego, which he missed due to a cough, Shackleford drew the rail and never seemed to handle the muddy track.

 

To Honor and Serve comes off a gutsy victory in the Grade 1 Woodward on September 1 at Saratoga, fending off a late bid from Mucho Macho Man to win by a neck.

 

Also probable for the Kelso are 2011 Haskell winner Coil, listed stakes winner Golddigger’s Boy, and graded winner Tapizar.

 

Listed as questionable are Caixa Eletronica, Jersey Town, and Private Tale.

On September 23, Coil handily worked 5 furlongs in 1.00:40 (4/52) at Santa Anita.
Shackleford has a huge heart! I'm predicting his effort to be a neck better than To Honor and Serve. To Honor and Serve showed TREMENDOUS fight in the Woodward, but I have to stick with my main man Shackleford for the Dirt Mile.
Shackleford, To Honor and Serve AND Coil! Throw in a little bit of Tapizar with a possible Jersey Town. How good is the actual dirt mile going to be?
