Vannacide tops Knotts


Trainer Kenneth Gleason will send out four of the seven Colorado-bred fillies and mares entered in the $20,000 Ingrid Knotts Handicap at Arapahoe Park, including defending champ Vannacide. Vannacide is seeking her 10th local win from 26 starts at Arapahoe and enters the six-furlong stakes off a runner-up finish in an allowance sprint. Her stablemates in the Knotts are Regan Rules, Creek Woman, and Bells Are Tolling.

The chief threat to the Gleason barn is She's Outrageous, who was a 15-length route stakes winner last year at Arapahoe.
