Charles Town track report


When the 8-year-old gelding Sweeping Analysis edged 2-5 favorite Governor's Pride by a neck in last Friday night's third race, for $3,000 claiming sprinters, at Charles Town, a couple of long losing streaks ended.

Sweeping Analysis ($42) had lost 20 straight races since recording his last win in November 2003 at Calder Race Course. His trainer, Raimondo Schiano-Dicola, is now 1 for 47 for the season after earning his first victory since Dec. 16.

* The Issue Is Power ($17), a 13-year-old who was a three-time winner last season when trained by Merril McCormick, registered the 22nd win of his long career in a $3,000 claiming sprint on March 31. It was the first victory in 2005 and only the second in the past two years for trainer Chris Mitchell, who had been 1 for 99.

* The 4-year-old filly Grand Piano ($21.80) was claimed out of her fourth straight outing, a 4 1/2-length win going seven furlongs in last Friday's first race. She was claimed for $5,000 by trainer Jeff Runco.

* Turbulant Mike, claimed out of his career debut at the $5,000 maiden level, raced above his conditions and got up by a head in a nonwinners-of-three allowance on March 30. He is trained by Sandra Brown.
