Full Field Signed on for $200,000 Presque Isle Mile

Category : News - Sat 06/09/2014 - 16:20 EDT

The $200,000 Presque Isle Mile is sure to whet the appetite of horse players across the country as a field of twelve and two also eligibles are signed on for the eight furlong event on the Tapeta.

Decisive Moment is the 3/1 morning line favorite for trainer Juan Arias after back to back second place finishes against non-graded stakes company at Calder and Gulfstream respectively.  The Florida-bred has just 4 wins in 33 lifetime starts, but has earned nearly $800,000.  Decisive Moment has not run on a synthetic surface since a seventh place finish in the 2011 Fayette Stakes at Keeneland.  The six year-old horse did, however, demonstrate the ability to handle a synthetic track by finishing second in the 2011 Grade III Spiral Stakes behind eventual Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom. 

Admiral Perry handled local strip in last 

Mezzano checks in as the 7/2 second choice on the morning line despite a seventh-place effort in his last start – the Belmont Sprint Championship Stakes on July 5.  The five year-old son of Mizzen Mast handled his last try on a synthetic surface defeating an allowance field at Keeneland in 2013.  Admiral Perry (4/1 ML) could be dangerous as he showed an affinity for the local strip defeating and allowance field at Presque Isle in his last start.

Classy Havelock looking to rebound

Havelock (6/1) offers some back class as a multiple graded stakes winner for trainer Darrin Miller.  The hard-knocking veteran, however has fallen on hard times losing his last six starts.  Veteran jockey Mario Pino will be aboard.
