Coalport heads back to Florida on three-race win streak


All three stakes starters whom trainer Mike Maker had at Sam Houston Race Park last Saturday night are headed in different directions. Coalport, who won the Grade 3, $200,000 Connally Turf Cup, is returning to Florida; Dreams Cut Short, who finished fourth in the same race, will target stakes at Fair Grounds; and Shanon Nicole, a close third in the $400,000 Houston Ladies Classic, is headed to next month’s Fasig-Tipton auction in Kentucky.
