Trace Creek will be big price in Hanshin Cup repeat bid


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – Trace Creek was a 44-1 shot when he won the Hanshin Cup a year ago at Arlington. The Arkansas-bred ran the race of his life that day, but his cause was helped by the relatively soft level of competition in the Hanshin, and when Trace Creek lines up for a repeat bid Saturday, he will be part of a stronger, deeper cast.
