Speed duel would aid All In White

Email

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - With Frisky Lover, Miss Sandy Dee, and Farrmost preferring to run near the lead, a hot pace may set the table for Regal Eyre or All in White in Sunday's featured Winnipeg Sun Stakes at Assiniboia Downs. The 1 1/16-mile race for fillies and mares will carry a purse of $27,500.

Ten lifetime victories and more than $250,000 in earnings makes All in White the class of the field. A 6-year-old mare owned and trained by Danny Bird, All in White will be making her 10th start of 2001. Her most recent effort came on July 28 at Canterbury Park, where she finished second in a conditioned allowance race. All in White's last victory came in April at Sportsman's Park against $20,000 claimers.

A winner in her Assiniboia Downs debut, Regal Eyre finished second in the Canada Stakes in her most recent effort on July 1. Trained by Patti Ross, Regal Eyre should be able to secure a ground-saving trip in behind the pacesetters for post 2.

Ross will also send out Miss Sandy Dee. A record of 2-1-1 from four starts at 8 1/2 furlongs and a career-best Beyer Speed Figure in her last outing may have Miss Sandy pointed towards her first stakes victory.

The early pacesetter in the Canada Day Stakes, Kitty Would finished third that day in her first attempt against stakes company. In her most recent start, an allowance race on July 13, Kitty Would rated off the speed and finished second, six lengths behind Miss Sandy Dee.

The lone 3-three-year-old in the race, Frisky Lover, will try going around two turns for first time. Owned by the Stronach Stable, Frisky Lover will be making her fifth lifetime start. Her only victory came in her career debut against maiden special weight company at Suffolk Downs early this year.
