Stall plans to return to Oaklawn


Trainer Al Stall Jr. sent a division of horses to Oaklawn last year, and he said he plans to return to the Hot Springs, Ark., track for the meet that opens in January. Stall is hoping to have a 10- to 12-horse division on the grounds, with horses for such clients as Arkansas resident Frank Fletcher, whose runners often have the word “Rocket” in their names as a tribute to his beloved dog Rocket. “We’ll have some Rockets in our pocket for Frank,” said Stall, among them the stakes winner Rocket Time.
