Mr. Chairman, owned by the Great Friends Stable, drew post position #4 in the $250,000 California Cup Classic to be run at 1-1/8 miles on the main track at Santa Anita on Sunday, Oct. 5. Several members of the Great Friends partnership are expected to be at Santa Anita for the race. The partnership is managed by Scott Kaplan, well-known radio sports talk show host along with Billy Ray Smith on San Diego's XX Sports Radio 1090 AM, 105.7 FM, (the Scott & BR Show) .
Mr. Chairman will be ridden by Michael Baze, for trainer Doug O'Neill. Although Mr. Chairman has been running mainly on the turf, O'Neill said, "I think he will run equally well on the synthetic track."
Best of luck, Great Friends!
