Adreamisborn eyeing San Francisco Mile


ALBANY, Calif. - Six runners are confirmed for Saturday's $400,000 San Francisco Breeders' Cup Mile on the turf at Golden Gate Fields, and six others were listed as possible by the racing office as of Tuesday.

The race is the only Grade 2 in northern California.

Local star Adreamisborn is set to run, as are Buckland Manor, Charmo, Hendrix, Romeo Plus, and Sweet Return.

Listed as possible were Aragorn, New Export, Place Cowboy, Red Fort, Sarafan, and Terroplane.

Adreamisborn, second to Castledale in this race last year when it was run at Bay Meadows, has the home turf advantage. He has won 4 of 8 starts with three seconds here.

While it is not Hendrix's home course, it is one of favorite places. He is 2 for 2 here.

The race marks the second start for Sweet Return after a six-month break. Trained by Ron McAnally, Sweet Return, 6, won two Grade 1's last year, the Charlie Whittingham at Hollywood Park and Eddie Read at Del Mar.

There are three $40,000-added stakes on the undercard. The field for the six-furlong Glen Ellen for 3-year-old fillies includes Victorina, Ladies Souvenir, and Hysterical Lady.

Now Victory goes for a third straight win in the Walnut Creek, a 1 3/8-mile turf race. Taco Willy and Sharp Writer are also in the field.

The Montclair, for 3-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles on the turf, has a field of 12, including Horse B With You, winner of the Scottsdale Handicap at Turf Paradise in her last start.

Hotel Hall tops Thursday feature

Hotel Hall, reclaimed by the hot Art Sherman barn on April 13 while winning his 2006 debut, tops a well-matched five-horse field in Thursday's feature, a $25,000 claimer at 1 1/16 miles.

closed out 2005 by losing a photo as the favorite in a $20,000 claimer on Nov. 11 while trained by Sherman. John Martin claimed Hotel Hall out of that race, and Sherman claimed him back last out.

Hotel Hall has drawn to the outside and might get the lead by default on Thursday. If not, his outside post helps give jockey Russell Baze the option of choosing where he wants to place him early.

also will be making his second start off a layoff, fresh off finishing second in similar company on March 25. He figures to improve on Thursday for trainer Andy Mathis, who wins with 39 percent of his starters second time off a layoff. Notable, too, is that Mathis has a $4.78 return per $2 win bet on his second-off-the-layoff starters.

Also in the race are and Derby Rider, who appear evenly matched, though Logician has defeated Derby Rider the last two times they met.

Klamathfallsasleep adds blinkers and returns to the claiming ranks after finishing eighth and last in allowance company last out.
