Oneanwin has price cut in half

EmailSAN MATEO, Calif. - A comebacker with a three-race win streak from last year and a runner eased in his last start could cause Bay Meadows bettors to ponder their chances in the final Friday evening program of the meeting.

Oneanwin, who won his debut here on Aug. 12 in a $50,000 maiden race at the Bay Meadows Fair, set the early pace in the Barretts Juvenile at Fairplex on Sept. 16. He was still in contention into the stretch before being eased in the 6 1/2-furlong race, run around two turns .

Bettors in the night's first race, a $25,000 claimer for

2-year-olds going six furlongs, will have to decide whether to excuse that effort. And they might, given Oneanwin's three works since then, including a 47-second half-mile bullet followed by a 1:00.80 five-furlong drill.

He faces Top Dis N Dat, a runner-up in both his starts at this level and coupled with The Lord a Rose. Top Dis N Dat figures to get a stalking-type trip.

Custom Continental, beaten a nose by Top Dis N Dat last time, should provide the early pace competition for Oneanwin.

The comebacking Highly Quick goes in the fifth race, a $25,000 claimer for fillies and mares. Although she has won three straight, she hasn't raced since Dec. 31.

Will she be fit enough to handle Hard Woman, who has won two straight and was claimed both times as she climbs up the claiming ladder? Now Woman has the speed to get a first-run trip.

Strip in Wager, who has finished first or second in her past six starts, won her lone start here.

Solid sprint field

A very solid eight-horse field is scheduled to compete in Saturday's $60,000-added Bay Meadows Speed Handicap.

The six-furlong race attracted four stakes winners - Another Kris, Barber, Immigration, and Wind Water - as well as Coastal King, Ten Downing Street, and Tontine Too.

Court the King, coming off an allowance sprint victory in his comeback on Sept. 22, rounds out the field.
