Brickyard will make his first start in his home state when he attempts to win the final stakes of the Indiana Downs season, the $70,000 Governor's, on Tuesday.\nBrickyard campaigned in New York earlier this year for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. Ronny Werner now has the 3-year-old, who is owned by Vision Racing LLC.\nWerner is confident about Brickyard's chances in the Governor's, a mile turf race for Indiana-bred 3-year-olds.\n"He has been doing really well. He has a series of nice works and he is ready to go," Werner said said. "I expect a big effort from him. We entered him in the last stake they had, but he came up with a fever and we had to wait. He is good to go now."\nBrickyard won a Monmouth Park maiden race by 1 1/2 lengths while making his fourth career start last time out on May 9. In his prior start, he finished second in a maiden race at Aqueduct on Feb 25, earning a 77 Beyer Speed Figure, the highest of any of the 11 entrants in the field.\nWerner isn't concerned about switching Brickyard, a son of Street Cry, to turf.\n"He is a big strapping colt and he is bred for the turf," he said. "I think the mile distance and surface are just what we are looking for. It looks to be a perfect spot."\nBrickyard was purchased for $175,000 from Keeneland's 2008 2-year-old sale. He will continue to run in the Indiana-bred races when Hoosier Park opens.\n"It just looks like the right spot for him right now," said Werner.\nShould the Governor's come off the grass, Hoosier Kingdom should have a say in the outcome. Trained by Ron Herrell, Hoosier Kingdom is 3-for-3 over wet tracks since coming to Indiana Downs, including an eight-length win in the Snack Stakes on June 13 over a track labeled wet-fast. His two other local victories came over sloppy tracks. Hoosier Kingdom has yet to attempt two turns, however.
