Fight for Ally just gets up


Fight for Ally, under strong urging from Curt Bourque, wore down front-running Stormy Impact to win the $40,000 Ides of March Stakes at Hawthorne Race Course in Stickney, Ill.

Fight for Ally, the second choice in the field of seven, returned $6.60 to win. Fighting Indians, at 2-1 the slim favorite, rallied to finish third, 3 1/4 lengths behind Stormy Impact.

Fourth Floor, Meadowminer, Saquache, and Tommy Cat completed the order of finish.

A 6-year-old Indiana-bred horse, Fight for Ally is owned by Frank Calabrese and trained by Wayne Catalano.
