Down Town Allen too good at Charles Town


Down Town Allen picked up where she left off last season by dominating Saturday night's $51,100 Its Binn Too Long Stakes for West Virginia-bred 3-year-old fillies at Charles Town.

Racing for the first time since December, Down Town Allen ($3.40) was sent to the front by regular rider Matt McGowan and romped by 5 1/2 lengths, covering 4 1/2 furlongs in 51.07 seconds. A three-time stakes winner last season for owner-trainer John Casey, Down Town Allen is now 5 for 10 lifetime, all at Charles Town.

Autumn Affair finished second, four lengths in front of Lolibop in third.
