Continuing a trend seen throughout the country this year of short fields in races for older, male dirt route horses, Saturday&rsquo;s Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile at Lone Star Park drew only five when entries were taken Wednesday.\r\nAs expected, among the lineup are the Steve Asmussen-trained duo of Friesan Fire and Thiskyhasnolimit, whom will break alongside each other as uncoupled wagering interests in posts 4 and 5.\r\nJoining them, from the rail out, are Kate&rsquo;s Main Man, the Essex Handicap winner at Oaklawn Feb. 13; 3-year-old Dreaminofthewin, runner-up in the Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn Jan. 17; and Southern California invader Gladding, who won the Grade 2 San Antonio at Santa Anita Feb. 6 before finishing 10th in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap on Mar. 5.\r\nGladding has history on his side. California shippers have won three of the last five Texas Miles &ndash; first with Preachinatthebar in 2006, then by Monterey Jazz in 2008, and most recently Mythical Power last year.\r\nGladding&rsquo;s trainer, John Sadler, expects a top effort from his horse, who has recorded three bullet works from his last four drills at Hollywood Park.\r\n&ldquo;I like this horse a lot,&rdquo; John Sadler said. &ldquo;Hopefully we can go over there and do some damage.&rdquo;\r\nGladding will carry high weight of 123 pounds under the race&rsquo;s allowance conditions. Jon Court rides.\r\nOther Texas Mile rider assignments are Cliff Berry on Kate&rsquo;s Main Man, Luis Quinonez on Dreaminofthewin, Gabe Saez on Friesan Fire, and Justin Shepherd on Thiskyhasnolimit.\r\nSupporting the Texas Mile on Lone Star&rsquo;s 10-race Saturday card are a pair of $50,000 stakes on the grass: the $50,000 Grand Prairie Turf Challenge and the $50,000 Irving Distaff.\r\nThe one-mile Grand Prairie drew attracted seven, led by Baltimore Bob and Skip A Smile. Besides those two, other stakes winners in the Grand Prairie include Deputiformer and Lee&rsquo;s Spirit.\r\nThe deepest of the three stakes is the Irving Distaff at 7 1/2 furlongs, which drew 12 fillies and mares, including a three-horse coupled entry of Slide On Bye, Ava Mae and Sugar Added, all trained by Francisco Bravo.\r\nSheer Beauty, a graded-placed Mizzen Mast filly coming off an open allowance victory at Delta Downs, should vie for favoritism with the three-horse entry.\r\nAs of midafternoon Wednesday, the weather forecast called for partly sunny skies Saturday in Grand Prairie, with a 30 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms. The high temperature is expected to be in the upper 80s.
