Stall optimistic Forevamo can run well in Risen Star


Forevamo was a 3-1 chance in a 10-horse field when he debuted last summer at Saratoga, so it’s fair to say there were hopes for this Uncle Mo colt, purchased at a sale of 2-year-olds in training by the Brittlyn Stables for $320,000. Forevamo finished third that day, was second at 6-5 in a Churchill maiden race, and even in his most recent start could only finish second as the favorite in a first-level allowance race here. But despite his record now of one win from five starts, Forevamo is headed in the right direction, trainer Al Stall hopes, which is why he’s getting a shot Saturday in the Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds.
