Budhoe Classic, Independence Day Race Top Sunday's Card

Out of the gate.The Budhoe Classic and the Independence Day Handicap will highlight TRAXCO’s July fourth races on Sunday at the Randolph “Doc” James Racetrack. A huge crowd is expected and TRAXCO has put together what looked to be a very well matched card.

The Budhoe Classic, the eighth race of the day for native-born thoroughbreds, will be run at a distance of one mile. The race will see the return of veteran campaigner, King David (121) coming off of a long layoff. Seven others will also be looking to take home the lion’s share of the day’s top purse of $8,000.00. From Emeralds to Ruby’s (114) comes out of gate one, Belzona Red (117), gate two, the speedy War (117), gate three, Miss Kosi (115), gate 4, with Creation Rebel (120), Dinero (119), and King David rounding out the field in that respective order. War is expected take the early lead out of the gates, but Creation Rebel, Gold Finger and King David will be rolling late.

The ninth race on the card, the Independence Day Handicap run at a distance of one mile for the territory’s top thoroughbreds, will see Gallant Ruler (119) out of St. Thomas come across the pond to challenge St. Croix best. He will be going up against Cherokee Law (117), Lost River (119), and Formal King (119) in arguably one of the best matched race that St. Croix has seen for some time. Any of these horses is capable of making it to the winner’s circle in this wide open race to claim the biggest share of the $7,000.00 purse and fans is no doubt looking forward to this one. With most of these horses either preferring to close or come just off the pace, they will be curious to see who will be willing to get out front and set the early fractions.
