All Giving regains form in Primonetta


In hindsight, trainer Flint Stites admits he may have asked his female sprinter All Giving to do a little too much in last fall's Maryland Million Distaff Handicap. Although she won that seven-furlong race for her third stakes victory of the season, the effort took its toll, as her form tailed off.

Based on how she performed in Saturday's $70,000 Primonetta Stakes at Laurel Park, All Giving is now as good as ever.

Racing in fourth as the field turned for home, the 6-year-old All Giving ($8.20) rallied strongly under Horatio Karamanos to draw clear by 2 3/4 lengths and snap a three-race losing streak. Streetscape, a 13-1 longshot, overtook pacesetter What Time It Is, an 18-1 outsider, to get second by 1 1/4 lengths. Multiple stakes winner Blind Date finished fourth, three-quarters of a length in front of Rocket Defense, the 5-2 favorite.

In winning for the 14th time in 39 starts, All Giving covered the six furlongs in 1:09.55.

"The Maryland Million race at seven furlongs was really a little too far for her," Stites said. "She put so much into that race that it took a lot out of her. The owners were gracious enough to let me put her away for the winter. Now I think she'll be stronger this year than last year."
