Hastings: Crew Leader returns to sprinting after career-best Beyer


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Crew Leader, a romping seven-length winner of the Portland Mile Handicap on Sept. 2, could be tough to handle when he cuts back to a sprint in the feature race at Hastings Saturday. The 6 1/2-furlong allowance race for 3-year-olds and up drew eight horses and there should be plenty of speed to set up a very sharp Crew Leader.
