Can Benny The Bull Repeat at Calder?

Joseph CiracoCorrespondent IJuly 11, 2009

Last year, Benny the Bull rallied in the stretch to win Smile Sprint Handicap at Calder.

After an ankle injury nearly ended his career, Benny the Bull returned in late June and finished a strong second in his first race in almost 11 months.

Now, the talented sprinter looks to repeat today at Calder against a talented field.

Ikigai is currently the second choice at 3:1 and is 4-for-5 at Calder.  The only issue with this speedy horse is he's win less in his last three starts and his forms looks mediocre.

Yesbyjimminy is 11 for 21 at Calder but has also struggled of late.  He's also win less in his last three starts.

Benny the Bull is currently at 6:5 but at that price, I don't see any value.

I'm picking the pure speed horse to win this $350,000 Grade 2.

How's Your Halo is currently 4:1 and is coming off an impressive performance on June 13, where he dominated from start to finish.

Benny the Bull will be flying at the end but the six pound weight advantage for How's Your Halo should help him hold off the closing favorite  as they approach the wire.
