Just six will vie in the feature race of the Claiming Crown card at Canterbury Park on Saturday, the $150,000 Jewel. Trainer Mike Maker looks to have a strong presence in here with talented allowance runner Headache. The son of Tapit exits a strong second and Churchill and is enhanced by the presence of jockey Julien Leparoux in this test.
G2 Cornhusker Handicap second Racing Bran should vie for favoritism with the aforementioned. The five-year-old son of Awesome Again took an Illinois-bred stakes event two prior and has won six of his last nine overall, signaling his good current form. Recent stakes hero My Friend Nev could be a player for the high-percentage Jamie Ness.
Also part of the big day of racing that highlights previous claiming runners are the $100,000 Emerald, $100,000 Lady Canterbury S., $75,000 Glass Slipper, $75,000 Rapid Transit, $50,000 Express, $50,000 Iron Horse, $25,000 Sprint S.
