Canterbury: Mr. d'Or faces many he's beaten


Five 3-year-old colts were entered in the $40,000 St. Paul Stakes, the featured event at Canterbury Park.

Mr. d'Or may prove the favorite in the six-furlong St. Paul. A winner of two races at Tampa this winter, Mr. d'Or bested several other members of the St. Paul field in his last outing, when he prevailed in a front-running effort in the Shecky Greene Handicap at Arlington three weeks ago. Dale Bennett trains Mr. d'Or, who will be ridden by Dean Butler.

Also running is Lissa's Star, who finished third behind Mr. d'Or in the Shecky Greene. A winner of a statebred stakes at Houston in April, Lissa's Star has the stalking style that fits the Canterbury Park surface.

Celluloid Hero finished fifth, beaten three lengths, in the Shecky Greene in his last start. A winner of the Dixieland Stakes at Oaklawn in January, Celluloid Hero didn't menace Lawyer Ron in a subsequent outing in the Southwest Stakes there, but finished second in the Lost Code Stakes at Hawthorne in April.

Garbu Road is another Oaklawn shipper who was entered in the St. Paul. A pace-pressing type, Garbu Road won twice at Oaklawn before fading in the Northern Spur Breeders' Cup Handicap in his last outing, which was also his first try at two turns.

Yourmoneysnogood ships from Prairie Meadows. In his last start, he bested older rivals in an allowance contest.
