No Sleep seeks third straight in Queen's

Email

OMAHA, Neb. - No Sleep should be a big favorite over five other fillies and mares in the $40,000 Queen's Handicap at Horsemen's Park on Saturday, the third day of the track's summer racing festival.

Maggi Moss, the leading owner in the country by races won, will run No Sleep and Switch Lanes as an uncoupled entry in the Queen's. Both are trained by Dick Clark.

No Sleep has won her last two races, including a 7 1/2-length victory in the Fort Monmouth Stakes on May 28 at Monmouth and a wire-to-wire neck victory in the Iowa Distaff at Prairie Meadows on July 1. This year she has won 5 of 8 starts. Joel Campbell will ride No Sleep, who carries top weight of 122 pounds and will break from post 3.

Switch Lanes scored a 4 1/2-length victory in the Hawkeyes Stakes at Prairie Meadows last time out. Switch Lanes was the runner-up in last year's Queen's Handicap. She will break from post 4 under Glenn Corbett and carry 116 pounds.

No Sleep and Switch Lanes both show speed and should be good targets for Plaid, a strong late-runner trained by Scott Blasi. Plaid has won her last two starts, both at Churchill Downs, and is coming off a one-length victory in a $25,000 starter allowance on grass. She will break from post 2 under Brian Peck and carry 116 pounds.

Also on the card Saturday is the $27,500 Who Doctor Who Handicap. The top three finishers from last year's edition return.

What About David, second in last year's Who Doctor Who, is the likely favorite. Trained by Marv Johnson, What About David drew off to win the Big Red Mile at Lincoln by three lengths in his last start. He will be ridden by R.D. Williams from post 2.

High Dice is the defending champion of the Who Doctor Who, but he has yet to fire a solid race this year, finishing no better than third in five starts. An 11-year-old, he will be ridden by Dennis Collins from post 7.

Mortrump, third in last year's race, is 0 for 8 this year and has not won since March 2005, a span of 17 races.
