Friday's Card to Feature Key 3-Year-Old Matchup

Three promising 3-year-olds will get together for the first time in Friday's third race, a $46,000 allowance at one mile.

Alyrob, Prince Of Thieves and Smithfield top a field of 13 who were entered Wednesday morning.

Of the three, only Prince Of Thieves is proven at a mile, breaking his maiden by nearly seven lengths Nov. 11 at Aqueduct. Trained by Wayne Lukas, Prince Of Thieves will be ridden by Gary Stevens.

Alyrob, the gelded son of Alysheba, won at seven furlongs at Hollywood Park in his second start.

Smithfield disappointed as the 13-10 favorite, finishing third behind the unbeaten Odin's Primo, but he figures to improve at the distance.
