Just when you thought it was safe to put your handicapping hat back on the hook this Saturday evening, the $1 Million GII Charles Town Classic will loom large at about 10:30 pm late this Saturday evening!
10 of the best 4yo’s and up will take to the Charles Town 6f track affectionately refered to as the “Bullring” for a 3-turn, 1 1/8 mile dust-up for a million dollar purse!
Duke of Mischief is back to defend his title won in the slop here last year. Tackleberry is in this 3-turn tussle too.
Coming in from out west are Uh oh Bango, Norvsky, Skipshot and everyone’s old buddy Tres Borrachos.
Mister Marti Gras is coming up from the now closed for the season Fair Grounds.
Redding Colliery, Pants on Fire and Calixa Electronica will be the beasts from the east with Norman Asbjornson, Cease and Eighttofasttocatch sitting on the bench awaiting some playing time should one of the first ten bow out!
