High Wire Glory could start double


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Twin preliminary allowance races, both at six furlongs on the grass, compose Friday's late double at Woodbine.

The ninth race, a wide-open race for males, includes a Stronach Stable entry of High Wire Glory and Daddy Cool.

High Wire Glory, trained by Roger Attfield, took six starts to win his maiden, but did so with relative ease over a good field on April 19. He was a fast-closing fourth in his first try on turf, in a 6 1/2-furlong allowance

Aug. 7, which followed an 11-week layoff. High Wire Glory, who breezed a half-mile in 48.80 seconds over the training track Aug. 21, will be ridden by Slade Callaghan.

Daddy Cool is making his first start for trainer Malcolm Pierce. Previously based in New York with trainer Joe Orseno, Daddy Cool exhibited promise early in the year at Gulfstream, but has been a disappointment in the interim and has little turf breeding.

Ray Sabourin has the mount on Daddy Cool, who is adding blinkers.

Rounding out the ninth-race field are No Givin Up, Aspen Ridge, One Tough Note, Tempest, Sweep Dancer, Sir Blitz, Alextrician, and Seven on Friday.

Stakes-placed Classic Ingrid heads the 10th race, for fillies and mares. A Regal Classic filly, she finished third in the one-mile La Prevoyante Stakes last fall for Attfield, and was turned over to trainer Mike DePaulo this year.

Classic Ingrid romped by 6 1/4 lengths when she moved to the grass for her second start of the meeting, in a one-mile allowance for Ontario-sired runners. She was third behind the upwardly mobile Hot Talent in her only subsequent outing, also at a mile, and has run well in turf sprints.

Dino Luciani, who has been riding the E.P. Taylor turf course like he owns it, picks up the mount on Classic Ingrid.

Also entered in the 10th race were Secret Rush, Devil's Good Girl, La Vitesse, Crown's Shadow, Once Upon a Twine, Glory's Story, Ashlee's Royal, Mind Reader, Prospectors Band, Panasofskee, Just Flawless, and Princess Atta.

Prospectors Band finished ninth last time after setting the early pace in the allowance prep for the Ontario Colleen Handicap, but her previous races were solid. She was third after racing wide throughout a July 12 seven-furlong allowance, in which runner-up Aerial's Melody exited to take the Victoriana Stakes.

Eric Coatrieux trains Prospectors Band, a nicely bred daughter of Dixieland Band and a Mr. Prospector mare.
