Greatsilverfleet heads field for today's Campbell Handicap

April 09, 1994

Greatsilverfleet, a stakes winner in Maryland and Arkansas, heads a field of six expected starters in today's Grade III $100,000 John B. Campbell Handicap at Pimlico.

The 4-year-old colt, trained by Dale Capuano, won the Annapolis Stakes at Laurel and the Essex Handicap at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas. Edgar Prado has been named to ride Greatsilverfleet, who could be pointed to the May 14 Pimlico Special.

Other horses entered in the 1 1/16-mile race are Reputed Testimony, Ameri Valley, Johnny Rome, Super Memory and Local Problem, a 5-year-old who won the Harrison E. Johnson Memorial Handicap at Laurel last month.

Gala Spinaway will miss the race because of a pulled muscle. Trainer Graham Motion said Gala Spinaway could run in the Jennings Handicap April 23.

NOTE: Ed "Sit Still" Ambrose, who rode Wildair to a third-place finish in the 1920 Preakness, celebrates his 100th birthday today. He lives near Aberdeen.
