Forest Uproar Convincing in Krantz

Sam-Son Farms’ odds-on favorite Forest Uproar, away fastest but quickly taken off the lead, responded boldly when asked for a run by jockey James Graham in mid-stretch and drew off late for a convincing three-length tally at Fair Grounds Saturday in the featured $60,000 Marie G. Krantz Memorial Handicap.

 

“I broke fastest and I kept waiting for someone else to take the lead, but no one went so I dropped her back behind the #1 horse (Naveed Chowhan’s Caminadora) just to give her something to look at,” Graham said after the race. “But as soon as I asked her to go she really went. She gave me everything I asked for.”

 

Forest Uproar accomplished the about 1 1/16-mile distance over a Stall-Wilson turf course rated good in a pedestrian 1:51.30 after Camindora’s hobby horse early splits of 28.68 and 55.85.

 

“Did you set a record for the slowest mile and a sixteenth time for the stakes ever?” Fair Grounds’ television personality Katie Mikolay asked winning trainer Mark Frostad in a post-race winner’s circle interview.

 

“You mean that race wasn’t a mile and an eighth?” Frostad quipped in reply, before adding, “They all had their shot. She came through and did what she had to do.”

 

Forest Uproar returned mutuels of $3.20, $2.40 and $2.10 and increased her career earnings to $201,696 with her fourth victory in nine career starts. The $60,000 Allen Lacombe Memorial Handicap at the same distance on the grass Feb. 27 might be her next local assignment, trainer Frostad indicated after the race.

 

Ivan Dalos’ Avie’s Tale, void of early foot, rallied in the late stages to gain the place by a neck and pay $3.20 and $2.60, while John Weiczorek’s Instant Style got up for the show position and returned $4.
