SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. &ndash; Will a Breeders&rsquo; Cup race finally be in Vineyard Haven&rsquo;s future this year? The first step towards answering that question comes Friday at Saratoga when the three&#45;time Grade 1 winner makes his long&#45;awaited 2010 debut in the $75,000 James Marvin Stakes, a seven&#45;furlong overnight event that drew a very talented field of older horses.Also lined up for the race are multiple graded stakes winners such as Friesan Fire and Le Grand Cru, Grade 2 winner You and I Forever, Discreet Treasure, Cool Coal Man, Flat Bold, Silver Edition and Half Metal Jacket.Vineyard Haven has not started since finishing third after setting a contested pace in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap on Nov. 28. Five weeks earlier, Vineyard Haven added the Grade 1 De Francis Memorial at Laurel to a pair of Grade 1 wins at 2 in the Hopeful and Champagne. He was also disqualified from first and placed second here last summer in the Grade 1 King&rsquo;s Bishop.Despite all his success, Vineyard Haven has yet to participate in the Breeders&rsquo; Cup. Trainer Bobby Frankel opted to pass the 2008 Breeders&rsquo; Cup Juvenile with Vineyard Haven because the race was run over the Pro&#45;Ride surface at Santa Anita. His present connections, Godolphin Stable and trainer Saeed bin Suroor, echoed those same sentiments when they opted for the Cigar Mile instead of the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Mile at Santa Anita last fall.&ldquo;With the Breeders&rsquo; Cup on dirt this year at Churchill Downs, it changes things,&rdquo; said bin Suroor&rsquo;s New York&#45;based assistant, Rick Mettee. &ldquo;We&rsquo;d have liked to have started him back a little earlier, but there are only so many races and we didn&rsquo;t want to run him at six furlongs. Seven is a good distance, and while he probably won&rsquo;t be as fit as he was for the King&rsquo;s Bishop, he&rsquo;s done enough work and has trained well enough to be ready.&rdquo;Several of Vineyard Haven&rsquo;s main rivals in the James Marvin are coming off layoffs of their own.Friesan Fire, who swept Fair Grounds&rsquo; trio of Kentucky Derby preps last year, has not started since finishing a distant eighth in Churchill Downs&rsquo; Grade 3 Alysheba on April 30 and has not run at any distance less than a mile since finishing third in Belmont&rsquo;s Grade 2 Futurity at 2.Discreet Treasure will make his first start since being transferred to trainer Bruce Brown&rsquo;s barn and first since winning a high&#45;priced optional claiming race at Belmont in July of 2009.Cool Coal Man, who won an overnight stakes by a dozen lengths here last summer, exits his best race of the season, a two length victory in Monmouth Park&rsquo;s Skip Away.
