VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The $50,000 PNE President’s Speed attracted six older sprinters, and any one of them appears capable of winning the six-furlong feature at Hastings on Saturday. Also on the eight-race card is the $50,000 Hong Kong Jockey Club Handicap for 3-year-old fillies.

And All That Jazz is coming off a front-running win in the $53,000 B.C. Cup Sprint on Aug. 4. Sent off at odds of 18-1, And All That Jazz set fast fractions and held on to beat Seminole Brave by a neck. In his previous race he won a $45,000 optional race on June 8. His trainer, Craig MacPherson, was pleased with his five-furlong work in 59.80 seconds on Aug. 24.

“He was strong from the start and he finished full of run,” said MacPherson. Referring to And All That Jazz’s exercise rider, he added, “Bob Rohman really deserves most of the credit for how well he is doing.”

Seminole Brave and Bank Emblem are certainly capable of carving out quick fractions and could put serious pressure on And All That Jazz.

If a speed duel does develop it could set up nicely for B R Remark. Trained by Brian Giesbrecht, B R Remark was voted the best sprinter in British Columbia last year but he has won only a single race at the meet and he is coming off of a disappointing effort in the B.C. Cup Sprint.

Fuhrever Dancing, who is trained by Terry Jordan, comes into the race off of a win in the 1 1/16-mile Westerner at Northlands Park on Aug. 17. He was claimed by owner Bob Cheema for $60,000 in his previous start at Woodbine on July 27.
