Duke of Mischief's spot undecided


Duke of Mischief, who returned from a three-month freshening to upset the Grade 3 Ft. Lauderdale earlier this month, is one of seven horses who were pre-entered in both the Sunshine Millions Classic and Sunshine Millions Turf. The Classic will be run over the Pro-Ride surface at Santa Anita with the Turf to be decided at Gulfstream.

"Right now I'm undecided," said David Fawkes, who trains Duke of Mischief. "One advantage I have here is that our plane isn't scheduled to leave until Wednesday, while the horses from California fly out Tuesday, so I will have an idea who is coming this way before I have to commit to the flight."

Fawkes, who sent out the 25-1 Two Cheers to upset Friday's fourth race, said he also hasn't ruled out the possibility of waiting another week for the Grade 1 Donn Handicap.

"I haven't closed the door completely on the Donn, although obviously Quality Road is going to be tough," said Fawkes, who plans to breeze Duke of Mischief over the turf here on Sunday.

Others pre-entered in both the $500,000 Classic and $300,000 Turf are Acclamation, Bad Action, Compari, Dry Martini, Enriched, The Usual Q. T., and Wicked Style.

Final entries and post positions for the six Sunshine Million races will be drawn on Monday.

Cool Coal Man wins again

Cool Coal Man won for the fourth time in five starts at Gulfstream after rallying to victory in Friday's third race. Cool Coal Man won twice in 2009 for trainer Nick Zito and owner Robert LaPenta.

Hey Byrn, who won the Grade 3 Holy Bull in 2008, finished second in Friday's third race with Delightful Kiss rallying to be third in his first start since last February.
