A six-horse field was entered for Saturday's $200,000 Bay Meadows Breeders' Cup Sprint Handicap (gr. III), with Swept Overboard drawing post three for the six-furlong heat. Eddie Delahoussaye will guide the 122-pound highweight.
Last year's Ancient Title Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. I) winner began his 5-year-old season on a disappointing note last month, finishing fifth in the San Simeon Handicap (gr. IIIT) on the downhill turf course at Santa Anita. The Craig Dollase-trained son of End Sweep finished second to Lexicon on last year's renewal when ridden by Corey Nakatani.
The field for the race, with jockeys and weights, will consist of:
1--Strike for Glory, Alfredo Miranda, 112
2--Sempai, Matt Garcia, 113
3--Swept Overboard, Eddie Delahoussaye
4--Explicit, Lonnie Meche, 120
5--Alyzig, Frank Alvarado, 114
6--Mellow Fellow, Russell Baze, 119
