Speed carries All Saint to 12-1 upset in Hank Mills Handicap


All Saint used his speed to upset Saturday’s $25,000 Hank Mills Sr. Handicap at Turf Paradise.

All Saint went right out to duel for the lead in the mile main-track event for 3-year-olds and up, was able to establish a clear lead going into the backstretch, and never really had a nervous moment thereafter, staying clear all the way home under Michael Iammarino to win by 2 1/4 lengths.

Fox in the House sat well back early in the field of nine and rallied for second, 1 1/4 lengths in front of One Call. Limestone Edge, the 3-5 favorite, stalked the pace, started what appeared a threatening move into the lane but flattened out, finishing fourth.

All Saint ($27.40), a 4-year-old son of Skimming owned and trained by Wilton Whitehouse,  ran the distance in a brisk 1:35.70. The winner’s share of $15,000 pushes his career bankroll to $184,826 from 4 wins in 21 starts.
