Ivan Fallunovalot brings funny name, big talent to Count Fleet Sprint


The horse with one of the best names on the backstretch is also one of the best horses at Oaklawn. Ivan Fallunovalot – pronounced “I’ve been falling off a lot” – is the highweight Thursday in the Grade 3, $300,000 Count Fleet Sprint Handicap. He brings three straight triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures into the race, including a 108 for a January allowance score and a 105 for a win in the $100,000 King Cotton Stakes in February.
