Email

S W Aly'svalentine, a three-time stakes winner last season, will attempt to fire fresh off a long layoff in the $60,000 Pistol Packer Handicap, a six-furlong race for Pennsylvania-bred fillies and mares at Philadelphia Park.

Now 5, S W Aly'svalentine has been off since late December, but she was off for nearly seven months when she won the Missy Good at Penn National and the Ambassador of Luck at Philly Park in her first two starts of 2006.

S W Aly'svalentine's four rivals include Hailie's Girl, who comes off a win against open company and has been first or second in 10 of 13 starts locally, and Coffee Shop, a Kentucky-based filly who boasts the field's best last-race Beyer Speed Figure of 85, earned for her win over open second-level allowance horses at Hawthorne.
