Square Eddie ready for Donn

More than a year from his last start in a stakes race, 2009 Kentucky Derby contender Square Eddie will enter the starting gate for Saturday's Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park. The 1 1/8-mile event will be his second race of the year after having to sit out all of 2010.


Owned by J. Paul Reddam, Square Eddie came to the races on January 14 with a fantastic victory in a 6 1/2-furlong allowance race at Santa Anita Park. The five-year-old set a new track record of 1:13.11 for the distance at the southern California track.


"He came out fantastic, legs ice cold, jogging sound at the shed row and ate up everything," said trainer Doug O'Neill. "We really worked him strong in the mornings. In my mind, it wasn't really his first race back off a layoff. It was more like his third, because a couple of the works were race-like works."


Square Eddie has won three of 13 career starts for $854,766. As a two-year-old in 2008 he was second to Midshipman in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
