Coalport formidable against statebred foes in Buck's Boy


STICKNEY, Ill. – The last time Coalport raced in Chicago, he was trained by Wayne Catalano. Coalport’s owners and breeders, Ken and Sarah Ramsey, subsequently moved horses stabled with Catalano to other trainers, and Coalport now is trained by Mike Maker. Different trainer, same horse, and Coalport, who never has lost an Illinois-bred grass race, will be a formidable favorite Saturday in the $75,000 Buck’s Boy Handicap at Hawthorne.
