Allourwishes class of Harrison 'Cap

Email

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan - Allourwishes headlines a competitive field of six 3-year old fillies in Friday's $5,000 Captain Stanley Harrison Handicap. The only stakes winner in the field, Allourwishes, should be well bet.

The Captain Stanley Harrison, run at six furlongs, also includes two fillies who won their maidens this spring at Stampede Park - Danzig Ballerina and D J's Runnaway. That fact alone should make them major players here.

Allourwishes won the Woodland Heritage last year against other Saskatchewan-breds, and was stakes-placed on two other occasions before being well beaten by Alberta's top fillies to end the year. In her only start this year, Allourwishes finished seventh over a muddy course at Stampede Park against $15,000 claimers.

Allourwishes races on or close to the lead, and should have company from Danzig Ballerina, who won her maiden at Stampede for a $15,000 tag at a half-mile.

Danzig Ballerina was unable to finish better than fourth in two races that followed her maiden win and was then shipped to Marquis Downs. She won an allowance here for non-winners of two against older fillies and mares just two weeks ago, leading all the way. She will be ridden again by leading rider Serge Rocheleau.

D J's Runnaway won her maiden at Stampede in a $7,000 claiming event going six furlongs. In that April 21 race, D J's Runnaway stalked the pace and ran past the leaders to win in 1:13. In her only local start, on May 29, she finished fourth at a half-mile. D J's Runnaway may be the sleeper in this race because of the expected fast pace.

Lucky in the Lead was stakes placed as a 2-year-old, but is still a maiden after six starts, two of them coming this year. She generally closes from well off the pace, and the race could set up well for her.
