Barkley set for 3-year-old debut in allowance sprint


Barkley, undefeated in two starts, appears to be primed for a big effort when he makes his first start as a sophomore in a conditional allowance race at Emerald Downs on Sunday. The six-furlong sprint restricted to 3-year-olds drew six horses, and it will be interesting to see if Barkley was just a precocious 2-year-old or if he will be one of the leaders of the 3-year-old stakes division at Emerald.
