Charles Town: Several speedsters in short sprint


Shamss, Rainbow Inthestorm, and Riproarious - all of whom have displayed high speed in longer sprints out of town - will try to replicate that form going 4 1/2 furlongs in the $50,000 Jiva Coolit Stakes for 3-year-olds at Charles Town.

Shamss, whose Beyer Figure of 98 in a nose loss against second-level allowance sprinters at Delaware Park is the best figure in the field, is coupled with Riproarious, who exits a six-length win against $35,000 claimers at Delaware.

Rainbow Inthestorm has not been behind at the half-mile call in each of his seven lifetime races, including an easy win at the distance facing maidens at Delaware last September.

Among those with experience going 4 1/2 furlongs at Charles Town, Logan's Rally is unbeaten in three career starts and Prince o'Pranks won his maiden by 3 3/4 lengths in April.
