Fair Grounds: Howard sends out well-bred pair in Thursday allowances


Neil Howard’s days as a head trainer date to 1979, and many of those years have been spent handling horses owned by Will Farish. When Howard gets a young horse bred by Farish these days, he often will have trained a long string of the animal’s siblings, if not parents. Such is the case with the 3-year-old filly Handmade and the 3-year-old colt Class Leader, both of whom see action in first-level, two-turn allowance races Thursday at Fair Grounds.
