Fairmount: Lovely Love has tricky post

Email

The fastest horse has the worst post in the All Sold Out Stakes at Fairmount Park. But if she can find a way home, Lovely Love can win.

Ten horses were entered in the All Sold Out, a six-furlong, $40,000 stakes for Illinois-bred 2-year-old fillies, and if all of them start, Lovely Love will be the last one loaded. Breaking from post 10 isn't automatically a bad thing in a sprint, but Lovely Love seems to have just enough speed to get hung wide around the turn. It will be up to jockey Carlos Silva to either find a spot just behind the leaders and gun for the front, or drop back, search for inside position, and hope for the best.

Trained by Richard Hazelton, Lovely Love made her debut with a narrow second-place finish in a fast race before breaking through in her second start. She comes into the All Sold Out off a bullet five-furlong work in 59.80 seconds Aug. 15 at Arlington.

Also in from Chicago are Dr. Nicole, who won a $35,000 maiden-claimer for trainer Wayne Catalano in her career debut July 13, and Trout River Red, who won her debut for trainer Mike Reavis in a statebred maiden special weight race Aug. 10.

Sharp debut winner Pretti Frosti may be the best of the locals, though Greta Susanna, a first-timer from the barn of Jimmy Zook, has the whiff of a runner.
