Retama Park


Wild Again Again, a front-running sprinter who won his comeback from a nine-month layoff in a restricted stakes last out, will attempt to carry his speed around two turns Saturday night in the $25,000 No Le Hace Stakes at Retama Park near San Antonio. The 7 1/2-furlong turf race closes out the track's 51-night stand for Thoroughbreds.

Leading trainer Danny Pish, who won the meet's opening-night stakes, hopes to end his season on the same note with Wild Again Again. "I'm going to see if I can make him a route horse on grass," said Pish.

Pish has accomplished half of his goal with Wild Again Again. The gelding won his turf debut in his last start in the five-furlong Tejas. He will now try to get two turns for the first time and Pish is hoping he can. "I had one that trained a lot like this one does, and that horse got the two turns," said the trainer, who has given the mount to Ted Gondron.

Threats to Wild Again Again include the more seasoned Kris Havingfunnow, winner of last year's $100,000 El Joven on turf at Retama, who is to be ridden by leading jockey Steve Bourque, and Colonial Power.
