Trainer Tom Howard, who had
saddled one winner this season at Arlington before tripling that output with a
training double on Labor Day, will try to continue to strike while the iron is
hot when he saddles Frank Fletcher’s Rocket Twentyone in Saturday’s Grade III
“She’s a nice filly and we’ve
always liked her,” said Howard’s wife Kathy, who rode under the name Kathy
Moore and was Oaklawn’s all-time leading female rider before being passed by
Cindy Noll in the late ‘90s. “We took this filly to Prairie Meadows for
her only start and she won that race easily. Eddie Razo told us she was
the best 2-year-old he had been on in several years.”
