Valley Loot on a roll


Valley Loot will try to add to her four-race win streak when she faces seven 3-year-old Michigan-bred fillies in the $50,000 Ann Arbor Stakes at Great Lakes Downs. The Ann Arbor is contested at one mile.

Valley Loot has beaten five of her seven opponents already while amassing a record of 5-1-2 in 8 starts, all at this oval. Among her four stakes victories are last year's Michigan Juvenile Fillies and both 3-year-old stakes at this meet, the Regret and the Plymouth.

Dublin Dutchess, who bested Valley Loot in the 2006 Michigan Sire Stakes and took divisional honors, will not run in the Ann Arbor.

Ronnie Allen trains Valley Loot for his daughter Kimberly. His son Mike is the regular rider of the Demaloot Demashoot filly, who has earned $175,267, tops in the field. Valley Loot drew post 5.

Desert Symphony, who rallied late to be beaten a half-length in the Plymouth Stakes, will break just inside of Valley Loot in the Ann Arbor. Trainer Del Waite has named jockey Ricardo Barrios to ride Desert Symphony, who is owned by Jesus Romero.

Tropic Rose finished third in the July 14 Plymouth and won an entry-level allowance on July 30. She was second in the Regret in June. Tropic Rose is trained by Robert Gorham and owned by Marion Gorham.

Tropic Rose will break from post 7 with Tommy Molina, who is second in the rider standings.
