All Giving grabs Alma North


All Giving took the track from favored La Chica Rica at the start and just kept going, winning the $50,000 Alma North Stakes at Timonium by 6 1/2 lengths. La Chica Rica, who had won five straight races, held second by another 6 1/2 lengths over Story of a Lion in the field of six Maryland-bred fillies and mares.

All Giving paid $5.60 as a strong second choice and covered the 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.79 under Jonathan Joyce.

All Giving, an Allen's Prospect filly trained by Flint Stites, had not faced statebred company since she won the Conniver at Laurel in March. The victory was the ninth in 22 starts for All Giving, who is owned by Concepts Unlimited Stable and Catherine Smith.
