^ Sucks in the sense that he was going for four in a row in this race.

Gomez had a tough day.

Now, finally, comes my choice from last year: Can Uncaptured regain his form or will the foot injury be a nuisance?

Meanwhile, Uncaptured breezed a mile Tuesday over the SafeTrack synthetic surface at the Ocala training center in Florida in preparing for his 3-year-old debut in the Spiral. Uncaptured won 6 of 7 starts last year, ending with a victory in the KJC.

“He went in 1:40 and got his last quarter in 24 and a tick,” said trainer Mark Casse. “He’ll ship straight into Turfway a few days out.”

As of Wednesday, and in order of preference, Turfway stakes coordinator Tia Murphy had these 17 3-year-olds listed as likely for the Spiral: Uncaptured, Balance the Books, Mac the Man, General Election, Capo Bastone, Fear the Kitten, Channel Isle, My Name is Michael, Black Onyx, Frac Daddy, Giant Finish, Nina’s Dragon, For Greater Glory, Cerro, Red Wings, Divine Ambition, and Crop Report.

The race will be limited to 12 starters, with two more on an also-eligible list.

A new sponsorship with Horseshoe Cincinnati Casino was announced last month. The race has been known by a variety of names since its 1972 inaugural, most recently the Vinery Racing Spiral.
