Lost In The Fog, arguably the most talented sprinter in the country, will be a short price to remain perfect in eight races in the $300,000 Carry Back today at Calder Race Course in Miami.
The Carry Back is part of the track's annual Summit of Speed and is the concluding leg of an all-stakes pick five with a guaranteed pool of $500,000. Other races in the sequence are the $300,000 Azalea Breeders' Cup, the $500,000 Smile Sprint Handicap, the $100,000 Calder Turf Sprint Handicap and the $500,000 Princess Rooney Handicap.
Owned by Harry Aleo and trained by Greg Gilchrist, Lost In The Fog, a 3-year-old Lost Soldier colt, will be reunited with jockey Russell Baze today. Because of a broken collarbone suffered in a spill at Golden Gate Fields, Baze was replaced by Edgar Prado when Lost In The Fog won the Riva Ridge Breeders' Cup on June 11 at Belmont Park.
It was also believed Baze would miss the Carry Back, but the jockey made a quick recovery and returned to the saddle Wednesday at Pleasanton.
