Indiana Derby: Shackleford Seeks Rebound

Preakness Stakes (gr. I) winner Shackleford will seek to get back in the winner’s circle Oct. 1 in the $500,000 Indiana Derby (gr. II), his final race before an expected start in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

Shackleford, owned by Mike Lauffer and Bill Cubbedge and trained by Dale Romans, is one of eight 3-year-olds entered in the 1 1/16-mile Indiana Derby at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. The Derby, with a probable post time of 6:15 p.m. EDT, is the final race on a 12-race program that offers nine other stakes, including the $200,000 Indiana Oaks (gr. II).

Romans, who began racing at Hoosier Park for its first Thoroughbred meet in 1995, holds the record of 18 for most stakes victories by a trainer at the track. He also entered recent Hoosier Park allowance winner Friends Place, who is owned by Preston Stables but will be coupled with Shackleford in the wagering.
