Full Field Set for $60,000 Krantz Memorial at FG
With an overflow field of 16 signed on for the $60,000 Marie G. Krantz Memorial January 16 at Fair Grounds, the mile and one sixteenth turf race for fillies and mares shapes up to be one of the more competitive betting races on a card that includes four other stakes races.
If Uchenna (3/1) is able to draw in from post 16 on the also-eligible list, the Mark Casse trainee should make her presence felt despite finishing a dismal eleventh last out in the Grade 1 E.P. Taylor Stakes October 18 at Woodbine. Prior to that start, the five year-old mare won the Grade 3 Ontario Matron Stakes July 25 at Woodbine and followed that effort with a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Canadian Stakes in September. In her six U.S. races, the Irish-bred and Great Britain-raced mare has won two starts.
Street of Gold always right there
Street of Gold (7/2) doesn’t win often – just 4 wins in 32 career starts – but, always seems to find herself in the thick of things at the wire. In her last seven starts, the six year-old mare has not finished worse than fourth, closing her 2015 campaign with a runner-up performance in the Blushing K.D. Stakes December 19. Jockey Robbie Albarado gets the call for trainer Brad Cox breaking from post 2.
Other half of Cox entry also live
Another Cox trainee, Cash Control (9/2), adds intrigue while riding a three-race winning streak into the Krantz following a last-out score in the Tiffany Lass Stakes. Graded-stakes placed on dirt, Cash Control has won 6 of 10 and figures to attract plenty of wagering interest.
