All Wired Up striding into stakes


All Wired Up was one of the flashiest maiden winners of the Delta Downs meet, and on Saturday night he will get tested for class when he takes on two stakes winners and three stakes-placed colts in the field of seven 3-year-olds for the $50,000 Clyde B. Stephens Memorial there.

All Wired Up won his maiden in his third career start last out, rolling to an 11 1/4-length win in a five-furlong race on Feb. 12. He covered the distance in a sharp 58.80 seconds and earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 91, the highest number earned among all starters in the Stephens.

All Wired Up has been given time to regroup from his big victory by owner-trainer Carrol Castille, and after defeating open company last out will be moving back into the Louisiana-bred ranks Saturday. He has shown excellent speed in his races, and figures to be leading the way from his rail post under regular rider Ricky Faul.

And aside from All Wired Up's good speed and impressive Beyer Figure, he is also appealing to hunch-players on the eve of Easter, as his dam is Easter Bunny Honey.

Mr. Excellent, winner of the $50,000 Calcasieu over five furlongs at Delta on Nov. 13, and Grande Diablo, winner of the $40,000 John Franks Memorial Sales Futurity on July 31, are the two stakes winners in the field. The stakes-placed starters are Robbeau, J.D.'s Blue Bayou and Buddys Rebel.
