Charles Town: Two seeking redemption in Leavitt


Allen Did It, disqualified from an apparent victory for running erratically in the stretch, and Paco Smart, a two-time stakes winner last season but 0 for 2 this year, will look to rebound in Saturday’s $50,000 Robert Leavitt Stakes for West Virginia-bred 3-year-olds at Charles Town.

Allen Did It earned a career-best 73 Beyer Speed Figure in a nonwinners-of-three allowance July 12 in which he drew clear by 3 3/4 lengths, but his number was taken down when stewards ruled he lugged in during the stretch run. He will make his second straight start at seven furlongs after running in a pair of 4 1/2-furlong sprints earlier this year.

Paco Smart won three of his six starts last year at 2, including the Vincent Moscarelli on the West Virginia Breeders’ Classic card, in which he beat Allen Did It by 5 3/4 lengths, and the seven-furlong Tri-State Futurity. Laid off following a fifth-place finish in January, Paco Smart improved to get second in the 4 1/2-furlong Coin Collector on June 30.

The full field of 10 also includes Primary Account, who steps up to stakes company after earning a 72 Beyer in a seven-furlong allowance win June 14; Lucy’s Bob Boy, who seeks his third straight win following daylight scores as the odds-on favorite; and Ravens Terms, who earned a 70 Beyer in a close second two starts ago.
