Lincoln: Sue is back


LINCOLN, Neb. - Oglala Sue returns to Nebraska to shoulder top weight of 121 pounds in the $22,500 Falls Amiss Handicap for Nebraska-bred fillies and mares going a mile and 70 yards at the Lincoln State Fair.

The Falls Amiss is one of a series of races that have replaced the Nebraska Breeders' Sweepstakes Day, a program which is being phased out. On Sunday, older Nebraska-breds face off in the Who Doctor Who Handicap.

Oglala Sue, a 4-year-old owned by Bluestem Farm Inc., made her first Nebraska start last year at Horsemen's Park, where she dominated a short field of statebred rivals by 13 3/4 lengths in the $25,000 Huskerette Stakes going one mile. This year she has a win and two seconds from four starts. Her win came in her most recent start on June 15 at Canterbury against optional-allowance company .

Previously she had a pair of solid seconds to similar company at both Sportsman's Park and Hawthorne in Chicago.

Trained by Hugh Robertson, Oglala Sue was also entered in the Minnesota HBPA Mile at Canterbury Park, but, according to racing officials, her connections intend to ship here here - which should prove rewarding. Dennis Collins has the ride on Oglala Sue, the likely heavy favorite under 121 pounds. The duo will break from post 1.

Double Dreamin Deb, trained by Herb Riecken, returns to defend her title in the Falls Amiss. She will be ridden by Dan Beck. Double Dreamin Deb picked up her first win of the year here June 16 when she rallied to capture the Matchmaker Handicap by a half-length. Double Dreamin Deb drew post 7.
