LOUISVILLE, Ky. &ndash; Not that it has been a bad year for Dale Romans. Not at all. Among other successes, there has been the emergence of Paddy O&rsquo;Prado and First Dude, both of whom have distinguished themselves while contributing substantially to another year of more than $5 million in stable earnings.\r\nAt Churchill Downs, however, it has been an un-Romans-like fall. Into Friday, the 44-year-old trainer had won with just 4 of his first 52 starters at the 21-day meet that comes to an end Sunday, a disappointing total indeed for someone who has won or shared eight training titles at his hometown track.\r\nThat frustration could be mitigated to a certain degree when Romans sends out arguably the top threats in the two allowance races that anchor the 11-race finale. C.S. Silk, most recently second in the Grade 1 First Lady at Keeneland, should come favored in the third race, a $68,540 turf route, while Guys Reward, second in the Grade 3 Commonwealth Turf earlier two weekends ago at Churchill, looks like the horse to beat in the 10th race, a $63,620 turf mile.\r\n&ldquo;It&rsquo;s been a tough meet, but I wouldn&rsquo;t mind getting a little momentum Sunday before we get started down in Florida,&rdquo; said Romans.\r\nC.S. Silk was 20-1 when she fought off a veritable cavalry charge in the Oct. 9 First Lady, only to be passed in the frantic final yards by Proviso, who was notching her fourth straight Grade 1 victory. Two races before that, C.S. Silk was the winner of a supporting stakes on the Woodward Stakes undercard at Saratoga.\r\nKent Desormeaux, who was aboard last out, will be back aboard when C.S. Silk breaks from the outside post in a field of seven fillies and mares.\r\nGuys Reward also was a big price when he came running to beat all but Yankee Fourtune in the Nov. 13 Commonwealth, ending the exacta at 40-1. Desormeaux picks up the mount on Guys Reward, who breaks from post 11 in a field of 12 that also has Harken Up and Au Moon as contenders.\r\nBesides the allowance co-features, closing day also will be highlighted by the Mine That Bird farewell and a 2011 calendar giveaway to the first 5,000 fans. First post is 12:40 p.m. Eastern.
