Mark of a Warrior runs first off the Hollendorfer RECLAIM, one race after Jerry lost him OUT OF A WIN, additionally having won 3 of 7 at SA previously and finishing 2nd in another two, moving back to the 10K level of his last win just one before last on 11/25 and with every right to get the job done once more. Charlie and Chris was out of his element on turf and in an allowance race last out on 11/29 but right before that at the 12,500 level and here at SA he won nicely, that effort very repeatable in this situation particularly with the jockey change to Rosario, up for the last win when riding for the first and only time.
