Congaree heads what should be a small but talented field of milers shaping up for Monday's Labor Day Del Mar Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II) on the main track.
Congaree, trained by Bob Baffert, figures to lead the field in the $250,000 for three and up going eight furlongs. Regular rider David Flores will be in the irons.
The Robert Frankel-trained Euchre is expected to enter, and he'll have leading rider Patrick Valenzuela up.
Kela and Reba's Gold, with Kent Desormeaux and Eddie Delahoussaye, respectively, doing the riding, fill out the list of committed runners.
Listed as possible are Eric da Bomb and Pie N Burger.
