Apart, Left Ready for LA Derby Day

Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider’s Left remains on track for his upcoming assignment in the Grade II Louisiana Derby March 26 and Adele Dilschneider’s Apart is being pointed for the Grade II New Orleans Handicap on that same star-studded program, trainer Al Stall Jr. confirmed Friday morning during training hours.

 

“Left has done everything right since he’s been here,” said Stall, speaking of his altered sophomore son of Arch who broke his maiden at first asking over the Stall-Wilson turf course Jan. 29 and came back to be clearly best once again in first-level allowance company on the main track Feb. 26. “He’s made it to the front in both of his races but once he gets there he gets a little lost and starts waiting on horses. He’ll get over that. They all do.

 

“The reason we ran Left in that grass race first time out was that he needed a race but we were looking for a dirt sprint for (Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider’s highly regarded) Bind, and Left was the odd-man out.”

 

“As for Apart, we’re starting to crank him up a little bit now,” said Stall of last year’s Grade II Super Derby winner who was second in the $60,000 Louisiana Handicap and third in the Grade III Mineshaft Handicap this winter at Fair Grounds. “This next race (the New Orleans Handicap) is the race we’ve been waiting on. We hope it works out for us.”
