Sole of the City favored in Hoist Her Flag


Fielding shippers from all parts of the Midwest, the $50,000 Hoist Her Flag Stakes at Canterbury Park attracted seven fillies and mares.

Sole of the City might prove the favorite in this wide-open six-furlong contest. An impressive winner of two consecutive races at Hawthorne, Sole of the City made the trip to Prairie Meadows earlier this month to capture the Prairie Rose Stakes in convincing fashion. Inez Karlsson has been aboard the 7-year-old mare in her three most recent starts and will be making her first visit to Canterbury Park. Roger Brueggemann trains Sole of the City.

Trainer Tom Amoss ships in Gallant Dreamer, who will attempt to capture her first stakes win. Second in the Stonerside and Ponca City Stakes last year, Gallant Dreamer posted a front-running win at Hawthorne last month.

The Mac Robertson barn will be represented by Pro Pink. A 4-year old Touch Gold filly, Pro Pink won twice from three starts at Oaklawn after being transferred to the Robertson string.

Fancy Gold won three of six starts here last season while never finishing off the board.
