A relatively quiet weekend of graded stakes action still offers intrigue this Saturday, with the return of Quip to racing in the G3 Hal's Hope at Gulfstream Park and the streaking Vasilika in action in Santa Anita's G2 Buena Vista.

The Hal's Hope also features Copper Town, Breaking Lucky, and Mr. Jordan in the eight-strong field set to go a mile on the main track. Longshot Sir Anthony, 20-1 on the morning line, has won his last four in a row including a defeat of Audible on Dec. 15.

In the Buena Vista, Fahan Mura will again try to take the field from gate to wire as the former claimer Vasilika seeks to extend her winning streak once again.
