Talco has tough task in Shoemaker


ARCADIA, Calif. – Talco, the winner of the Thunder Road Stakes in April, faces the most difficult test of his career in Saturday’s $400,000 Shoemaker Mile. He is part of a probable small field in the Grade 1 turf race, which is expected to be led by the star Brazilian import Bal a Bali and Midnight Storm, who won the Del Mar Derby last August.
