All Night Labor's work cut out

Email

All Night Labor will put her three-race win streak on the line in a wide-open, six-horse running of the $75,000 Bristol Stakes for fillies and mares on Tuesday at Philadelphia Park.

Based at Delaware Park with trainer Randy Nunley, All Night Labor began her year by winning a $35,000 claimer at Philly Park on Feb. 24. She then vanned up to Aqueduct to win a $35,000 starter handicap on March 12 at a mile and 70 yards, the same distance as the Bristol. She returned to Aqueduct next out and won the $68,000 Perfect Poppy Stakes on April 2.

A 4-year-old by Gone West, All Night Labor's Beyer Speed Figure of 87 two starts back is tops in the Bristol. And Nunley is strong with favorites going a mile or longer - winning with 18 of 40 such starters, or 45 percent, over the past five years.

Stewart Elliott, who rode All Night Labor in her last two wins, will ride again Tuesday.

The problem for All Night Labor is that Lil's Lassie, Congratulate, Kourages Kelly, and Hoochie Glide also have Beyer Figures in the 80s in recent races.

Lil's Lassie - a 5-year-old with a record of 4 wins, 2 seconds, and a third in 8 starts - lost by just a neck last out in the $65,000 Wayward Lass at Tampa Bay Downs. Trainer Michael Zwiesler and jockey Kendrick Carmouche have teamed to win with 8 of 26 starters over the past five years, with a $5.98 return on investment.

Congratulate, 4, has just three lifetime starts but won two of them, most recently a first-level allowance at Philly Park on March 9 with an 83 Beyer. Her trainer, Ron Glorioso isn't strong with 31- to-60-day layoffs, however, going just 2 for 24 with them since 2003.

Kourages Kelly won a third-level optional claimer at Philly Park on April 7 with an 84 Beyer. But she is stretching out from 6 1/2 furlongs, and her trainer, Scott Lake, has a low five-year return on investment ($0.97) with starters going from sprints to routes.

Hoochie Guide earned an 83 Beyer two starts ago in a win at Oaklawn Park, but faded last time and may be off form.

J.D. Safari, likely the longest shot in the race, could spring an upset if she runs back to her win, and 85 Beyer, two starts back.
