Apart May Run in Clark

Adele Dilschneider’s Apart, Blame’s stablemate who won the $100,000-added Ack Ack Handicap (gr. III) at Churchill Downs, may return in a grade I race at the track later this month.


Trainer Al Stall, Jr. said the Apart has been shipped to Keeneland but could race at Churchill in the Clark Handicap Presented by Norton Healthcare (gr. I) on Nov. 26.


Stall won the Clark last year with Blame, who upset Zenyatta in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I). Apart, a workmate for Blame earlier this year, has followed almost an identical path in his 3-year-old year.


"He is with Blame on the calendar," Stall said of Apart, who had won the Super Derby (gr. II) in the race before the Ack Ack, a race Blame had run second in in 2009. "We thought dirt was Apart’s best surface and he was not proven on Polytrack."
