'Hope' for Edenwold

Queen's Plate winner EDENWOLD is wasting no time getting his 4-year-old campaign under way as the colt is entered for Saturday's Hal's Hope Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream, the 9th race on the card.
There is a ton of early speed in the one-turn, one-mile Hal's Hope
There is also a ton of good ones in the bulky 13 horse field and Edenwold drew post 13. Strong Contender and Sweetnothernsaint (undefeated since 2nd in the Preakness) are just 2 rough ones in the group. If Edenwold can settle off the pace and rally - as he has shown he can do in one-turn races, he could enter the top 4. Tough spot though.
Canadian-bred SLAM BAMMY is in the Grade 3 Mr. Prospector Stakes earlier on the card and looks like a contender.

Canada's first champion of 2006 to race in 2007, KIMCHI, the year's best 3yo filly, disappointed in the Get Lucky Stakes on Thursday at Aqueduct. The Langfuhr filly was a bit sluggish from the gate in the one-mile test, then moved up rank on horses heels, chased between horses and then appeared to lug out on the turn while stalling. She finished fourth at even-money.

    Ya he's 20-1, and really should be 100-1 beat nothing but pigs and chickens in canda. He's a 50,000 claimer when he cross the border, the maple leaf falls off those Canadian horses in the US.
