'Dixie Dot' heads cast on Texas's richest day


GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - Lone Star Million Day, an annual program of seven stakes worth a cumulative $1 million, will be run Monday at Lone Star Park. The card, which draws horses from around the country, is the richest day of racing in Texas.

Dixie Dot Com, based at Lone Star since romping in last month's Grade 3 Texas Mile, is the 118-pound starting highweight for Million Day's featured event, the Grade 3 $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap.

Officials also expect the race to draw Mr Ross, 117; Remington Rock; Elite Mercedes; Fan the Flame; Big Numbers, and Five Straight, who worked five furlongs in 59.40 seconds on Monday, out six furlongs in 1:12.60.

The richest Million Day race for fillies and mares is the WinStar Distaff, a one-mile turf stakes worth $200,000. Gino's Spirits, winner of the Grade 3 Churchill Downs Distaff Turf Mile, is expected as the starting highweight under Robby Albarado. Others expected are Dianehill under Tyler Baze; and Out of Reach; Euryanthe; Dashing Lesley; Sarah Lane's Oates; and Voladora.

Dr. Park, winner of the Grade 3 Will Rogers at Hollywood Park, and Baptize, edged in the Grade 3 American Turf Challenge at Churchill Downs, are expected for the $200,000 USA Stakes, while Miss Seffens will make her first local appearance in the $100,000 Valid Expectations, a six furlong race for fillies and mares that could also draw Hallowed Dreams.

Other races on the card are the $50,000 JEH Stallion Station led by Nanie's Dinner; the $50,000 Carter McGregor led by Boots On Sunday; and the $100,000 Lone Star Park Turf Sprint.

Caller One considers Turf Sprint

Trainer James Chapman said Caller One, winner of the $2 million Golden Shaheen in Dubai on March 24, is under consideration for several stakes right now, among them the Lone Star Park Turf Sprint.

"We're up in the air," said Chapman. "There's two or three stakes we're looking at. I did reserve a spot for him on the plane [to Texas]."

Caller One is also under consideration for the Grade 3 $100,000 Los Angeles Handicap at his Hollywood Park base May 27; the Moseley Breeders' Cup at Suffolk Downs June 2; and the Grade 2 True North at Belmont June 9.

If Caller One goes in the five-furlong Turf Sprint, he would be making his first career start on turf. He is highweighted at 123 pounds for the race, which is expected to draw Morluc, winner of the Grade 3 Aegon Turf Sprint, 121; Caro's Royalty; Dr. Lewis, who worked three furlongs on turf in 34.80 seconds Monday; Vinnie's Boy; American Spirit; Oro Negra; Wild Hits; and Soccer George.

* With a Purpose returns to sprinting in the featured eighth race Wednesday night, a 6 1/2-furlong, nonwinner-of-two-lifetime allowance worth $29,000. With a Purpose meets 12 others, including three colts who were daylight maiden winners in their last starts: Storm Dancing, Joyful Tune, and Mr. T.K.

* Talk about lightly raced. Shoo Tell Doodle, a 7-year-old, will make his second career start in the 10th race Wednesday.
