TOP STRIKER CARRIED Willie McCarthy to victory in the $50,000 Carolina Cup in March. The 5-year-old gelding could make a try for sweeping the Camden feature chases should trainer Arch Kingsley Jr. start him in Saturdays $100,000 Colonial Cup.
Sue Sensor’s Top Striker will try to become the second horse in as many years and, just third in 45, to win both the Carolina Cup and Colonial Cup feature chases in the same calendar year. Sensor, who like Top Striker’s trainer, Arch Kingsley Jr., calls Camden home, nominated the 5-year-old Van Nistelrooy gelding into Saturday’s 45th running of the $100,000 Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup at the Springdale Course in Camden. The first race of the day is set for 12:30 p.m. Winner of the $50,000 Carolina Cup on March 29 by a comfortable 11 ½ lengths over a field of six novice jumpers, Top Striker regained his best form in winning the $50,000 AFLAC Supreme Hurdle for novices at the Steeplechase at Callaway in Georgia on Nov. 1 with Camden’s Bernie Dalton in the irons.
