Calhoun Barn Pleased With Summer Applause

Gillian Campbell et al.’s Rachel Alexandra Stakes winner Summer Applause, as well as Carl Moore’s Chamberlain Bridge, runner up in Saturday’s $75,000 Colonel Power, came out of their impressive efforts Saturday in good order, according to Jill Parrot, assistant to trainer Bret Calhoun.

 

“We were really, really pleased with the way the filly ran for us,” said Parrot. “As for Chamberlain Bridge, he sometimes causes his own problems, but we thought he ran a good race, too. In fact, there was only one way it could have been any better.”

 

JOSIE CARROLL PROUD OF ‘RACHEL’ RUNNER-UP AVIE’S SENSE 

 

Josie Carroll, trainer of Tall Oaks Farm’s Rachel Alexandra Stakes runner-up Avie’s Sense, was extremely pleased with her filly’s effort Saturday in the final designed preview for the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks on March 31.

 

“I thought she ran a huge race and I’m very proud of her,” said Carroll. “I would have liked to have gotten another race into her before she ran in that one yesterday, but we couldn’t get one for her. To step up from a maiden win into graded stakes company is quite a jump, but I thought she proved yesterday that she belongs in this kind of company. Hopefully, she’ll continue to do well over the next few days and we’ll be able to consider a race like the Fair Grounds Oaks for her.

 

“As for the winner (Gillian Campbell et al.’s Summer Applause), we know what a nice filly she is because she used to be with us in this barn,” Carroll concluded. “We are very proud to have run that well against her.”
