Columbus: 'Any Dream' in off win


Columbus offers a twin bill as 3-year-old Nebraska-breds take center stage in the fillies and the colts and geldings divisions of the Nebraska Breeders' Special Stakes. Each race has a $15,000-added purse and is contested at 6 1/2 furlongs.

The fillies division starts off the stakes doubleheader in the seventh race with a competitive field of six that includes Any Dream Will Do, who seeks her first stakes win of the year. Any Dream Will Do is coming off an entry-level allowance win at the distance here Aug. 11 and once again has Dennis Collins aboard for trainer Jone Loyd.

Saint Bay, trained by Marv Johnson, has won three of four starts this year but has not been out since July 1. She can be in front or come from just off the leaders, and could pose a serious threat with Yuri Yaranga aboard.

The colts and geldings division is headed by Bevys Dazzler as a field of five will meet in the eighth race. Trained by David Anderson, Bevys Dazzler is riding a four-race win streak this year, his most recent victory coming in the Hall of Fame Stakes here Aug. 5. Jerry Carkeek will again be in the irons.

Track Hero, second by a head in the Hall of Fame and also trained by Anderson, will have R.D. Williams aboard and should once again be the main opposition for Bevys Dazzler. Marv Johnson will bring Did back in from his base at Canterbury Park with Yaranga in the saddle.
