     Tres Borrachos will make career start No. 47 in the All American, which attracted a field of eight.  Tres Borrachos will break from post position one under veteran jockey Joey Steiner.  

     The All American will be the 35th stakes start for Tres Borrachos, who owns a pair of Grade 2 stakes victories.  Tres Borrachos won the Grade 2 Swaps Stakes at Hollywood Park in 2008 and the Grade 2 San Diego Handicap at Del Mar in 2011.
