Lone Star: Snow Drift goes for hot barn


Snow Drift, who has won both of his starts at the meet, is currently 1-2 to keep his streak going in the upcoming fourth race, a conditioned allowance at a mile on turf. Chris Landeros has the mount for Tom Durant and trainer Jack Bruner, the same connections who accounted for two wins on last night's card, including the featured eighth race with Little Talk ($8.40).

Durant is the leading owner at Lone Star and Landeros tops the current rider standings. Bruner is third in the local trainer standings led by Bret Calhoun.

Another horse of interest in the upcoming fourth is current 8-1 shot J J's Indy. He is making his turf debut and his sire was a winner on the grass while his dam placed twice on the lawn the two times she ran on such a surface. J J's Indy is also moving back into the overnight ranks after facing stakes rivals in a sprint at Will Rogers Downs. The horse's last win came in the overnight ranks, at a distance to similar to the one he will be running over in this spot.
