Three veterans of the Visa Triple Crown trail -- Meetyouathebrig, Scorpion, and Percy Hope -- will try to build momentum for the second half of their 3-year-old campaigns as they head a field of 10 horses entered in Saturday's $100,000-added Northern Dancer Handicap at Churchill Downs.
A pair of D. Wayne Lukas-trained fillies topped the Churchill Downs work tab Thursday morning. Surfside went five furlongs in 1:00 4/5 and Cash Deal went the same distance in :59. Also working at Churchill Thursday were three horses trained by Elliott Walden -- Brahms, Meetyouatthebrig, and Golden Temper.
