Iroquois Racing Club’s Gal About Town, most recently second by a half-length in Churchill’s Grade II Golden Rod Stakes Nov. 24, breezed six furlongs in 1:13.60 Sunday morning for trainer Bret Calhoun and is being pointed for Fair Grounds’ $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes Jan. 19 as the first leg of Fair Grounds’ three-race sophomore filly series that concludes with the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks March 30.

“Everything is good with her so far and she worked good today,” said Calhoun’s assistant trainer, Peaches Geier, later in the morning.


Gary and Mary West’s Tour Guide, an accomplished sprinter who easily won Fair Grounds’ $60,000 Sugar Bowl Stakes at last asking Dec. 22 for trainer Bret Calhoun, breezed an easy mile in 1:44.40 Saturday morning and is now under strong consideration for Fair Grounds’ Grade III Lecomte Stakes at one mile and 70 yards on Road to the Derby Kickoff Day Jan. 19.

“Basically, we just ‘two-minute licked’ him a mile to try and stretch him out a little,” said Calhoun’s assistant trainer, Peaches Geier, later in the morning. “This time of year if you’ve got a nice 3-year-old you want to stretch him out if you can.”

In the only two-turn race of his career to date, Tour Guide made the pace in Delaware Park’s $75,000 Dover Stakes last October but gave way steadily after going three-quarters to finish fifth beaten 13 lengths at the wire.
