Seven Line Up for Best Pal

Fore Left | Sarah Andrew

Four of the seven runners slated to contest Saturday's GII Best Pal S. graduated at first asking, including morning-line choice Schrodinger (Justin Phllip), trained by Simon Callaghan and owned by Kaleem Shah. Heavy favorite in his Los Alamitos debut June 30, he came from just off the pace to score by 1 1/4 lengths under Flavian Prat. The French-born rider gets back aboard this time. Also likely to garner plenty of support at the windows, Fore Left (Twirling Candy) just got up for a narrow score subsequent GIII Bashford Manor S. victor Phantom Boss (Shackleford) in his career bow at Santa Anita May 19 before shipping east to take Belmont's Tremont S. June 7. Mario Gutierrez, who was aboard last time, gets the call here. Collusion Illusion (Twirling Candy) came from off the pace to take his career bow at Del Mar July 21, and has been working sharply since for trainer Mark Glatt. Joe Talamo rides for the first time. Wrecking Crew (Sky Kingdom) got off to a slow start in his career opener at Del Mar July 27, but finished up nicely to win as the prohibitive choice. The potent duo of Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith and trainer Peter Miller align here.
