Big return for Sing Baby Sing


Sing Baby Sing has been one of the Mid-South region's top sprinters for years, and he looked the part here Sunday when he won an allowance sprint in his first start since the fall with a Beyer of 99. He is expected to return to stakes competition for his next start, which is still being determined, trainer Jack Bruner said Tuesday.

"We're still deciding what way to go," said Bruner, who trains Sing Baby Sing for Tom Durant. "We'll take him back to the track and kind of evaluate him, see how his attitude is, then start making some plans."

Sing Baby Sing is a Grade 3 winner of $485,060. The race Sunday was his first since he finished third in the Grade 3 Bold Ruler Handicap at Aqueduct on Oct. 31. Sing Baby Sing stalked the pace Sunday and went on to a 2 1/2-length win, covering six furlongs in 1:09.48.

"I was very pleased with the race from him," said Bruner.

Chris Landeros was aboard Sing Baby Sing, one of three winners he rode here Sunday for Durant and Bruner. The barn hopes to keep rolling into the weekend. El Oso, a romping debut winner last month at Lone Star for Durant and Bruner, is on deck for the Stymie division of the Stallion Stakes. El Oso won a maiden special weight sprint by more than eight lengths, with a Beyer of 85.

Another 'Coyote' makes debut

Red Coyote, who is a half-brother to multiple stakes winners Coyote Legend and Gold Coyote, will make his debut Thursday night in the eighth race at Lone Star. The 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight is for 2-year-olds bred in Texas.

Red Coyote, like his siblings, races for his breeder, Clarence Scharbauer, and is trained by Calhoun. Cliff Berry has the mount on Red Coyote, who will break from post 4 in a field of 10.

Coyote Legend and Gold Coyote both won their maidens at Lone Star in their second starts. They are by the Seattle Slew stallion Gold Legend. Red Coyote is by the Gilded Time stud Early Flyer.
