Mountaineer: Russell Road attempts Mountaineer Mile on short rest


Two weeks ago, Russell Road’s bid to become a three-time winner of the $450,000 West Virginia Breeders’ Classic was thwarted when he was run down in deep stretch by Fed High. Russell Road, the winner of 26 races and $1.6 million, is coming back quickly to try for a consolation prize in Saturday night’s $130,000 Mountaineer Mile at Mountaineer Racetrack.
