Rocket Twentyone Could Shoot for Alcibiades

Trainer Tom Howard reported that Frank Fletcher’s Grade III Arlington-Washington Lassie heroine Rocket Twentyone was in fine fettle Sunday morning and likely to go on to Kentucky after Arlington closes the doors on its 2011 season Sept. 25.

 

“Yesterday was a very good day for us,” said Howard when reached by phone during training hours Sunday morning. 

 

“In fact, it was a very good week for us,” added the conditioner who saddled a training double earlier in the week. “Everything is coming together real nice for us, lately.  Also, we’re not done yet.  We’re still in business.  We have a few other horses we have high hopes for before the (Arlington) season ends.

 

“(Rocket Twentyone) seems fine this morning,” Howard added.  “We have nothing rock solid in mind for her just yet but we’re planning on going down to Churchill Downs and camping out after Arlington.  Maybe there will be a deal for us at Keeneland (possibly the Grade I Alcibiades Oct. 7), and if that works out for us, maybe they’ll have another deal for us at Churchill Downs.”
