All Wired Up after 4th straight win


All Wired Up will be trying something new when he shoots for his fourth straight win in a turf sprint allowance at Louisiana Downs. To be run at about five furlongs, the race will be the first grass start for All Wired Up. He will face six others, including multiple stakes winner Zarb's Dahar.

All Wired Up has won a five-furlong stakes and two allowances in his last three starts, his most recent score coming at 5 1/2 furlongs at Evangeline Downs on Aug. 11. He is making the move to turf for a couple of reasons, said his trainer, Brandon Marks.

"We've always wanted to try to run him on the grass," he said. "And the distance has a lot to do with it also, the five-eighths. He's so quick, I just want to see how he does on the surface."

All Wired Up, who tends to set the pace in his races, will break from post 7. The outside draw might give his rider, Marlon St. Julien, some tactical options.

"There's a couple of quick horses in there," said Marks. "This horse, I don't think he has to be on the lead. He just does it so easy. Marlon will ride him how he breaks.

"We took the blinkers off him a few races back, and he relaxed a lot better. I'm not really worried about him coming from off of it."

A stretch threat is Zarb's Dahar, who cuts back to one turn after finishing second by a half-length in a turf allowance Aug. 11.
