Chippewa Warrior, with the aid of Lasix, the medication that controls respiratory bleeding, should prove he’s much better than his disappointing local debut. Don’t, however, discount Lingerhof, who has won half of his eight starts, or Rolling Eyes, who might have been the best horse when Lingerhof surprised in the City of Spokane Handicap.
