Special to the Daily Herald

The Chicago Blackhawks may be conducting training camp at the University of Notre Dame this week, but that won't stop Kaner and Toews from facing off Saturday at Arlington International Racecourse.

The Kaner and Towes referred to here are not hockey superstars -- they are racehorses, each in search of their first victory in the day's 11th race (approximate post time 6 p.m.)

The two equine athletes are owned by members of the Glander family. Kaner races for Richard Glander while Toews races in the name of Craig Glander, Richard's son.

Toews has one advantage heading into Saturday's race, the fact that he has made one start. His first outing wasn't a success, however, as he finished seventh in that effort on Aug. 24. Kaner's advantage seems to be that he is working out faster during morning training hours -- though that doesn't always transfer to a superior effort in the afternoon.

Kaner, who will start from Post 2, is listed as the 5-1 second choice in the track's official morning line while Toews, who drew Post 4, is listed as a 15-1 longshot.
