What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Close Ally...

For the second year in a row, trainer Mike Stidham is poised for an attempt at a sweep of the Mid-America Triple. All In Stable’s Willcox Inn, winner of the $100,000 Arlington Classic here in May, added an American Derby victory to his ledger. The son of Harlan’s Holiday, ridden by Robby Albarado, c...Read More
All In Stable’s Willcox Inn, winner of the $100,000 Arlington Classic, the first leg of the Mid-America Triple on May 28, returns to the local oval in pursuit of that series’ second leg, the Grade II $200,000 American Derby on Saturday.   The American Derby will be run at a mile and three-sixte...Read More
British-bred Dubawi Heights, a 4-year-old filly owned by Neville Callaghan, Michael Magnier, Clodagh McStay and Annabel Wyatt who is an original nominee to this summer’s Grade I Beverly D. Stakes Aug. 13, made positive strides in that direction by capturing Hollywood’s Grade I Gamely Stakes by a hea...Read More

Banned showed an explosive turn of foot in the Grade 2 American Turf Stakes at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Oaks day.

Friday's Grade 2 American Turf Stakes from Churchill Downs has attracted a full gate of fourteen 3-year-olds and Banned has been made the 3-1 morning line favorite.Banned, trained by Tom Proctor for Glen Hill Farm, smartly captured his first two turf starts last year and ended his 2-year-old campaig...Read More
Close Ally looked very impressive today at Keeneland winning by about six. He exited off of a tough Grindstone that included Great Mills (2nd Transylvania) and Willcox Inn (Blue Grass bound on Saturday). Close Ally is beautifully bred by Giant's Causeway out of a daughter of the great race mare Gorgeous. I wonder if they'll stick to the turf with him or go on the dirt. Turf seems most likely.
All In Stable’s Willcox Inn, away from competition since finishing third in the Grade II Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs, has been installed as the solid 5-2 choice in the morning line for Saturday’s $60,000 Grindstone Stakes at Fair Grounds.   The third renewal of the Gr...Read More
