Danieltown vulnerable as favorite


Jimmy Cracked Corn, a winner of 3 of his 7 career starts, including the Bucharest at Sam Houston, is live in a field of 10 in the $50,000 Golden Circle Stakes Saturday night at Prairie Meadows.

Jimmy Cracked Corn, with Luis Quinonez aboard, figures to be prominent throughout the six-furlong race for 3-year-olds.

Tom Amoss trains Jimmy Cracked Corn, who reeled off three consecutive wins, all at different tracks, before running third when tried on grass for the first time last out at Fair Grounds in a 7 1/2-furlong open allowance race.

Danieltown is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in the Golden Circle. A front-running gelded son of Pioneering, Danieltown has finished second in back-to-back stakes, one at Turfway and the other in his last race in the Lost Code Breeders' Cup at Hawthorne on April 3.

But Danieltown has also faded badly on occasion and may be one to play against on Saturday. Overall, Danieltown has 2-4-2 record from 14 starts, good for $81,300 in earnings for his owner, Stonerside Stable. Trainer Bernie Flint has named Tim Doocy to ride.

Okie Style, who won three stakes last year, including two at Prairie, makes the first start of his 3-year-old season on Saturday. He is trained by Kelly Von Hemel. Ken Shino has the call aboard Okie Style for his owner-breeders, Kristine and John Richter.
