HOLLENDORFER SEEKS RICHES AT CHARLES TOWN, HAWTHORNE

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer will seek a pair of rich road victories Saturday when he sends out top-ranked Shared Belief in the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic at Charles Town Races in West Virginia and Cross the Line in the $400,000 Illinois Derby at Hawthorne near Chicago.

Shared Belief, America's best racehorse, is the 2-5 morning line favorite in the Charles Town Classic, a 1 1/8-mile race contested on a six-furlong oval. The race begins on the backstretch and requires trips around three tight turns.
