Email

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. - The field for Saturday's $100,000 Bosselman/Gus Fonner Stakes was in flux right up until the last minute, but by the end of Thursday's draw a strong field of eight horses was in place.

Tap Dancing Mauk, trained by Eduardo Caramori, was en route to Fonner Park Thursday morning and expected in Friday afternoon. The morning-line favorite at 2-1, Tap Dancing Mauk exits a pair of graded stakes at Gulfstream Park. On Feb. 3, he finished sixth, beaten by 13 lengths at triple-digit odds, in the the Grade 1 Donn Handicap, which was won by Invasor. He came back in the Grade 3 Skip Away and finished sixth, beaten by 4 1/2 lengths. R. D. Williams picks up the ride and Dancing Mauk will break from post 6.

Scat Cat Jamey could be the sleeper in the field. Trained by Randy Morse, Scat Cat Jamey has a win and three seconds from his four starts this year, all at Oaklawn Park. His mark of 5-4-2 from 13 starts at the 1 1/16-mile distance of the Bosselman marks him as a likely contender. Dylan Williams wsa named to ride.

Yourmoneysnogood, part of an uncoupled entry from trainer Kelly Von Hemel, won the Dowd Mile here on April 14 and will be making his first start at 1 1/16 miles. Perry Compton will ride from post 1. Von Hemel also sends out Trickyville Dew, a stakes winner last year, for his second start of the year. Armando Martinez will be aboard from post 2.

Motion Approved, second to Wally's Choice in last year's Bosselman, comes up from his Oklahoma base for trainer Debbie Dyer. A 6-year-old by With Approval, Motion Approved opened his campaign April 1 with a fourth against optional claiming company at Will Rogers Downs. In last year's Bosselman, he rallied through the far turn to lead by a length into the stretch, but could not sustain his move and finished nearly five lengths in front of the third-place finisher. Dennis Collins will ride from post 3.

Rounding out the field are High Fleet, with Larren Delorme aboard; Always Noble, Carlos Montalvo; and Al's Dearly Bred, Tanner Riggs.
