Staroscik entry big favorite


LINCOLN, Neb. - Bach's Homebrew and his entrymate, Bingosablumin, should be a heavy favorite when they headline the $20,000-added Lincoln Breeders' Special at Lincoln Race Course on Saturday.

The Lincoln Breeders' Special, for 3-year-old Nebraska-breds, will share the spotlight with an exhibition camel race that will run after the third race and an ostrich race that follows the feature.

Bach's Homebrew will be making his first start at a mile. He was impressive in a 8 1/4-length winner in the six-furlong Journal Star Stakes here May 29. That day, he rallied to the leaders with a quick move through the far turn and drew off with authority.

Bach's Homebrew broke his maiden at Remington Park last fall in his career debut. He returned March 20 at Fonner Park and was fourth in the Bachman Stakes at a half-mile. Since then, he has not been worse than third, winning an entry-level allowance in his next start and finishing third in the Baxter Stakes and second, beaten a head, in the Fonner Park Special.

A son of Milwaukee Brew trained by Larry Staroscik, Bach's Homebrew will have regular rider Armando Martinez aboard. Bingosablumin, third in the Journal Star, will be coupled in the wagering for owner Bluestem Farm

Cherishistheword was the beaten favorite in the Journal Star and will also make his first start at a mile for trainer Chuck Turco. He stalked the pace and tired to finish fifth in the Journal Star but should be part of the pace in the stretch out.

Goatfeathers, trained by Jason Wise, also stretches out off an entry-level allowance win here May 30. A son of Miracle Heights, Goatfeathers may appreciate the increase in distance as he makes his second career stakes appearance. He was previously fifth in the Fonner Park Special behind Cherishistheword and Bach's Homebrew.
