A competitive field of fourteen is set to go in the 12th running of the $50,000 Da Hoss Stakes for three-year-olds and up at one mile this Saturday at Colonial Downs.

Leading the field with an impressive $564,656 in earnings is the Graham Motion-trained Cherokee Artist. Having finished in the money in twelve of twenty lifetime starts, Cherokee Artist has not won since he took the $250,000 Presque Isle Downs Mile in September of 2009. However, he has faced competitive fields in several Grade I and Grade II races, with his best runs coming in the Gr. III Hanship Cup Handicap at Arlington Park and the Gr. III Canadian Turf Handicap at Gulfstream Park.

Baltimore Bob is back in the field for a second try, having finished fifth in last year’s running of the race. The John Secor-trained horse most recently finished third in two Grade III races and took the Henry Clark Stakes at Pimlico by a ½ length.

Although winless since August of last year, the Ernie Oare-trained Pick Six has earned over $300,000 lifetime. Having run in the Gr. I Santa Anita Handicap and finished second in both the Diliberto Memorial Handicap and the Gr. II Mervin Munoz Handicap at the Fair Grounds, Pick Six appears to add class to the Da Hoss field.

Timeless Fashion, a gelding who has finished off the board in three of fifteen starts, also looks to add another stakes victory to his resume. The Thomas Drury, Jr.-trained gelding has won several stakes, including the Dust Commander, Independence Day, Prairie Bayou, and Tejano Run Stakes. He has earned over $270,000 lifetime.

The field also includes Vanquisher, Rockaby Bay, Virginia-bred Frisky Thunder, Dubai Review, Sarto, Target Sighted, Brother Sy, Hasta Luego and Olympic Chief.
