Six stakes set to close out Fairmount Park meet on Illinois Day

fairmount

A sextet of stakes for Illinois-breds and foals worth $300,000 will cap off the six month-plus long Fairmount Park meet on Tuesday, September 10. Races 2-4 and 6-8 headline the Fairmount meet as the 2013 season draws to a close.

Race 2, set for a 1:27pm CT post, is the six furlong All Sold Out Stakes for two-year old fillies, named in honor of the Illinois-bred Grade III winning sprinter who netted over $400,000 in her career. The race is headlined by a quartet of recent maiden breakers and Arlington invaders #2 Oh Suzanna, #4 Immoral Lifestyle, #5 Church Road, and #7 Dreamofjean E.

#1 Sasy Ms Elizabeth and #6 French Rivieriss, trained by Leroy and Rusty Hellman, respectively, round out the top contenders. Interesting of note, French Rivieress is making her first start and is out of the mare who shares her namesake with Race 3.

Race 3 is the six furlong Lady Riss Stakes for fillies and mares three-years old and upward. Lady Riss is a multiple stakes winning mare by Unreal Zeal who banked over $300,000 in her career. The race is headlined by leading trainer Scott Becker's entry of Algonquin Posse, who finished second in last year's rendition, and Win 'Em All as well as Midwest Thoroughbred's #8 Missjeanlouise, who has traded punches with Algonquin Posse over the course of their careers.

Race 4 is the Pete Condellone Memorial Stakes, contested at one mile and 70 yards for horses three-years old and upwards. Nagys Piggy Bank, winner of the race last year and cross entered in Tex's Zing later in the card, will vie for favoritism alongside entrymate and speedster Garland's Spirit with #2 Lassell.

Race 6 is the Bungalow Stakes, named for the three time Grade III-winning mare and contested at one mile and 70 yards for fillies and mares three-year olds and upward. Leading owner-trainer combination of Bill Stiritz and Scott Becker send out an entry of Rosie My Rosie and Our Domain to face a field of nine, including Chicago-based trainer Carlos Silva's entry of Indygo Kiss and Diva's Diamond, Wayne Catalano's #6 Seans Silverdancer, who finished third in last year's edition, and Steve Manley's #3 Nikaluk, last year's runner-up.

Race 7 is the Troy Our Boy Stakes, run at six furlongs for two-year old colts and geldings. Troy Our Boy was a perennial leading Illinois sire who finished in the money in half of the 61 starts in his career. Sons of Sun King (#1 Solar Flair), Fusaichi Pegasus (#5 Bad Boy Peter), and Thunder Gulch (#8 Hey Pretty Boy) top the field.

Race 8 is the Tex's Zing Stakes, run at six furlongs for horses three-years old and upward. Tex's Zing was a top Illinois thoroughbred who netted over a half million dollars in his career. The field of ten features the Scott Becker entry of Nagys Piggy Bank and Royalrap, Midwest Thoroughbred's entry of the impressive Work All Week and Signsealndeliver, and one of Illinois' top sprinters of the last decade and Fairmount Park-enthusiast, #7 River Bear.
