Executive Time drops


EDMONTON, Alberta - Executive Time is taking a drop in class Sunday to face seven other $17,500 female claimers in a six-furlong sprint at Northlands Park.

Executive Time, trained by Floyd Arthur, is coming off second- and fourth-place finishes in $22,000 company at 6 1/2 furlongs.

Before those efforts, Executive Time had been competing at the $30,000 level, where she won a sprint July 3 for her second victory of the season. Real Simard retains the mount.

Greg Tracy is sending out 3-year-old Trompeta, who has been productive at this level.

Trompeta, who again will be ridden by Stephan Heiler, was claimed out of a six-length win for $17,500 from Cal Lefurgey's stable. She had been runner-up in two successive races immediately before that after descending from allowance ranks.

Facing for her former connections will be Catfish Alley, who came home to Rod Heggie's barn when she was claimed for $17,500 by the Reid Racing Stable. Rickey Walcott is taking over the mount.

Regal Sum is moving back up the ladder after winning her last race against $13,000 company.

Trained by Wendy Kadar, Regal Sum won three races over the summer. She had been running for as high as $30,000 after winning an allowance.

Bailey Jazz will be looking for her fourth victory of the campaign. She won two races ago for $13,000, then in her last outing she finished third in a three-way photo.

View Halloo, a 3-year-old filly, is dropping from $22,000 and is still in search of her first win of the year.

The often-claimed Speedfast will race here for Jim MacPhail and George Rogers after being claimed in her last outing for $17,500 from the Bear Stable.
