Eight will go in Lane's End



The Enquirer and wire reports

A field of eight is shaping up for Saturday's $500,000 Grade II Lane's End Stakes (ESPN2, 4-5 p.m.) at Turfway Park.

The field is topped by Michael Tabor's Grade II Hutcheson Stakes winner Lion Tamer and Lloyd Madison Farm's Champali, who could make history for sweeping all four stakes at Turfway for 3-year-olds.

He has won the Turfway Prevue, WEBN and John Battaglia Memorial.

Other probables include Grade III Lecomte Stakes winner Saintly Look, impressive Gulfstream allowance winner Eugene's Third Son; Aqueduct allowance winner New York Hero; Fair Grounds maiden winner Lots of Sizzle, Ozzie Cat from the barn of D. Wayne Lukas, and local longshot Wendlar.

DUBAI WORLD CUP: Travers winner Medaglia d'Oro was withdrawn from the March 29 $6 million race because trainer Bobby Frankel thinks the horse is not ready.
