Mark Valeski, Mr. Bowling Doing Well

Brereton Jones’s Mark Valeski, second by a nose in Saturday’s Grade II Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds, had cleaned up his feed tub and was doing very well Sunday morning, according to trainer Larry Jones.

 

“All my horses came back well and are in good shape today,” said Jones. “I talked to all of them last night, and they all told me that they were so excited to see Mark Valeski run that, well, they just decided to go ahead and let him have his chance to shine.”

 

Brereton Jones’s Mr. Bowling, winner of the Grade III Lecomte here last month and coupled in the wagering with Mark Valeski in the Risen Star, was unplaced in the Risen Star.

 

“I can’t find anything wrong with him,” said Jones, “and (jockey) Robby Albarado told me after the race he just kind of let him finish on his own after he realized he wasn’t going to get anything.

 

“As for Believe You Can, she’s OK today, too,” said Jones of Brereton Jones’s filly, fourth in the Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes Saturday after winning the $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes here last month. “We’ll still be pointing her to the (Grade II) Fair Grounds Oaks next month. We thought she ran a good race yesterday.”
