Last year's champion older male will try to extend his six-race winning streak in the Eddie Read Handicap (gr. IT), which he won in 2011.
West Coast star Acclamation, winner of five straight races, including the TVG Pacific Classic (gr. I), won't run again this year because of a foot problem, according to an Oct. 11 Daily Racing Form story.
Returning to his favorite turf course, favored Acclamation earned a repeat victory in the $150,000 Jim Murray Memorial Handicap (gr. IIT) with a seven-length romp at Hollywood Park May 14.
