McAleney will try two tracks in one day

EmailETOBICOKE, Ontario - Trainer Reade Baker and jockey Jim McAleney will have plenty of stakes on their plates this weekend.

On Saturday, Baker will send out Bear Holiday for the $125,000 Swynford, a seven-furlong stakes for 2-year-olds that goes as the fourth race at Woodbine.

Bear Holiday is undefeated in three starts and will be seeking his third consecutive stakes score under regular rider Jerry Baird.

In the eighth race, Baker and McAleney will team up with Dash It Darling in the $125,000 La Prevoyante, a one-mile turf race for Ontario-sired 3-year-old fillies.

Dash It Darling is coming into the La Prevoyante off a third-place finish in the Eternal Search, a 1 1/16-mile main-track stakes for Ontario-sired 3-year-old fillies here Aug. 19.

"I took the blinkers off last time," said Baker. "I made a mistake. She didn't concentrate; she was just lost out there."

Dash It Darling also should appreciate getting back to turf, where she won her maiden and finished second in a first-level allowance earlier this year.

Immediately after the La Prevoyante, which is scheduled for 4:31 p.m., Baker and McAleney will head for the airport to board a rented plane that will take them on a one-hour flight to Erie, Pa.

If all goes off without a hitch, McAleney will be aboard Vestrey Lady in the $400,000 Presque Isle Downs Masters Stakes, a six-furlong race for fillies and mares that is scheduled for 8:10 p.m.

Vestrey Lady will be returning to a synthetic surface after making her last three starts on the turf course here. The filly also will be cutting back in distance after faltering in the 1o1/16-mile turf prep for the Canadian last time out.

"It looks like that's what she wants to do," Baker said of the return to a sprint.

On Sunday, McAleney and Baker will be back together here with Storm Caller in the Woodbine Mile and Fatal Bullet in the Summer Stakes.

Storm Caller, a 4-year-old gelding owned by Jim and Susan Hill, is coming into the Woodbine Mile off a fifth-place finish in the Grade 2 Play the King, where he was beaten 3o3/4 lengths by Le Cinquieme Essai going seven furlongs on soft turf.

In his start prior to the Play the King, Storm Caller had earned a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 100 for winning an optional claiming race at one mile on firm going.

"He's training good, and doing good," said Baker. "I don't know if he's of this quality, but there's no place else to run him, anyway."

Fatal Bullet, owned by the Bear Stable of Danny Dion, will be making his turf debut in the Summer, a one-mile race for 2-year-olds.

In two previous starts, Fatal Bullet won a maiden special at six furlongs and finished second behind Briarwood Circle in the off-the-turf prep for the Summer.

"Hopefully, he can turn the tables because of the turf," said Baker.

Aint No Cure goes in allowance

Aint No Cure, who was nominated to the La Prevoyante, has opted for a first-level Ontario-sired allowance at 1 1/16 miles here Friday.

Trained by Steve Attard, Aint No Cure finished last of seven in the Eternal Search last time out but had finished second in a maiden special weight race at 1 1/16 miles in her only previous try around two turns.

"I thought she ran a good race there," said Attard. "She was trailing a slow, slow pace and just ran even. I think she's a better turf horse, but she still likes Polytrack."

Jono Jones, who won last Sunday's Natalma with Clearly Foxy, regains the mount on Aint No Cure following a one-race absence.

Saskawea still recuperating

Saskawea, who has been the hard-luck horse in the 3-year-old filly division while chasing the likes of Bear Now and Sealy Hill, has suffered another setback.

Owned and bred by the Beclawat Stable of Les Pereira, Saskawea had been fighting a foot problem prior to the Sept. 1 Ontario Colleen and was entered in the race but scratched.

In the interim, Saskawea came down with colic and recently returned to the track after undergoing treatment at the nearby University of Guelph.

Saskawea had been nominated to the $125,000 La Lorgnette, a 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-old fillies, but will not make that race.

Attard said he is uncertain whether Saskawea can make the Carotene, a 1 1/8-mile turf stakes here Oct. 6 which is the next race for the division.

"We might not even see her again this year," said Attard.

Vibank retired, will stand in Ontario

Vibank, a stakes winner of four races and $299,690, has been retired and will stand the 2008 season at Park Stud in Orangeville, Ontario.

A 4-year-old son of Silver Deputy out of the Bold Ruckus mare Princess Ruckus, Vibank will stand for $3,000 as the property of a syndicate.

Bred in Ontario by Gustav Schickedanz and racing for owners Jim and Alice Sapara and trainer Josie Carroll, Vibank won both the Victoria and Clarendon stakes in 2005 and was a Sovereign Award finalist in his division.

* Jennifer Morrison, Woodbine's oddsmaker and a regular Daily Racing Form contributor, will host a one-hour seminar focusing on the Woodbine Mile beginning at 11 a.m. on the second floor of the grandstand here Saturday. Former jockey and Hall of Famer Jerry Bailey, who is visiting this week as a paid guest of the Woodbine Entertainment Group, will join Morrison midway through the session.
