With the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IT) on the 6 1/2-furlong downhill course at Santa Anita coming up in early November, plenty of connections with top turf sprinters see the wisdom in prepping on the unique course in the Eddie D. (gr. IIIT).

Queen Bee Racing's Toowindytohaulrox provided an opening-day shocker Dec. 26 at Santa Anita Park, unleashing a furious closing drive in the stretch to win the $100,000 Daytona Stakes (gr. IIIT) at odds of 21-1.
After less-than-ideal runs in his last three graded stakes tries, Midnight Storm returned to form in standout fashion Nov. 27 at Del Mar, but he also showed a slightly different dimension.
A field of 11 turf sprinters will compete in the Oct. 3 Eddie D Stakes (gr. IIIT) coming down the Santa Anita Park hillside turf course at about 6 1/2 furlongs.
