The new connections of the millionaire Researcher will find out this weekend whether their plan to bring the 7-year-old gelding back to the races after an 11-month absence with an eye toward taking the $1 million Charles Town Classic for a third time is a realistic goal.\r\nResearcher, who has not run since winning the 2010 Classic, will tune up for a possible start in this year&rsquo;s Classic on April 16 when he faces five other older horses in a 1 1/8-mile no-conditions allowance race at Charles Town on Saturday night.\r\nPurchased by Zohar Ben-Dov&rsquo;s Kinross Corporation with the intent on turning him into a jumper, Researcher did not adapt well to the steeplechase world. Several months ago, plans were revised to bring the horse back to the racetrack.\r\n&ldquo;We made a decision around January 1 that we were going to create a plan for the horse to get back to this point and make an effort at the Charles Town Classic,&rdquo; said Neil Morris, who has taken over as Researcher&rsquo;s trainer. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s done everything textbook so far that we&rsquo;ve asked him to do.&rdquo;\r\nSince he was placed back in training, Researcher has posted three bullet workouts, the most recent being a 1:01.60 five-furlong breeze at Charles Town on March 19.\r\nWhile Morris wants to see a solid effort Saturday night in order to take the next step to the Charles Town Classic, he said it&rsquo;s not a must-win situation for the horse.\r\n&ldquo;I don&rsquo;t need to see a win on Saturday night,&rdquo; Morris said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m more interested in seeing him come from off the pace, make his run, and finish strong.&rdquo;\r\nMost of Morris&rsquo;s success as a trainer has come with jumpers. He is just 2 for 42 with horses running on the flat in dirt races the past five years.\r\nAmong the challengers for Researcher in Saturday&rsquo;s eighth race are In The Juice, who is 2 for 2 in nine-furlong races at Charles Town, and Edgewater, winner of last September&rsquo;s 1 1/8-mile Governor&rsquo;s Day Stakes at Delaware Park.
