Stakes Saturday in Cold Chicago

We go into cold temps for a race on the Turf in that Toddlin' Town.

Hawthorne Race Course Race 6  {Bucks Boy Handicap~1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A closely matched group of six will hit the Turf in this feature race. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace. The speed numbers are fairly close which should make for a quality race. The cold weather should be a challenge for these lads.

#8 Coalport (Hernandez / Maker) may have the upper hand with the highest last out speed number at a longer route, a five race progression, and three superb peaking workouts. This son of Kitten's Joy should be close the pace ready to get first jump on the field. He also holds the highest speed number at the distance attaching that to an enviable 75% in the money record.
$1 WIN  / $1 SHOW.

#1 Sweet Luca (EE Perez / Block) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two excellent peaking workouts. He should be able to close efficiently into a sound pace. This son of Candy Ride [ARG] has a win at this distance.
$1 PLACE  / $1 SHOW.

#6 Ultimo Tango (Roman / Delacerda) should contend with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number and one stout workout. This son of Pure Prize could be the speed of the race attempting to wire the field. He holds an 100% in the money record at the distance from three starts.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#7 Yankee Dealer (Colvin / Reavis) should play a prominent role in this Turf contest with a couple of good last out speed numbers and two strong peaking workouts. This son of Yankee Gentleman has also shown a steadfast in the money record of 80% at this distance. he will be tracking the pace.
