Weekend at Pimlico

June 05, 1999|By Bob Pickering


South African-bred Spook Express carries an outstanding record into the All Along Stakes, a mile and one-eighth event for fillies and mares. The $100,000 turf affair has drawn a dozen entrants.

Trained by Tom Skiffington, Spook Express compiled an 8-for-9 record in her home country before being shipped to the United States to win Hialeah's Columbiana Handicap. The 5-year-old will be ridden by Tom Turner.

Besides the daughter of Comic Blush, only Tampico, Smashing Review and Maria's Tiara bring winning races into the All Along.

The field also includes Poopsie, I'm Indy Mood, Earth to Jackie, Proud Owner, Absolutely Queenie, Be Elusive, Lonesome Sound and Heavenly Advice.


Arthur Appleton's Wire Me Collect heads a field of seven which passed the entry box for the Chesapeake Stakes, a $100,000 sprint over the main oval. The 6-year-old horse captured the Fireplug Stakes here earlier in the meeting before finishing third in Suffolk Downs' Mosley Breeders Classic last month.

Others in the event include Storm Punch, Greenspring Willy, Just Call Me Carl and Jove Stone, Klabin's Gold and Premier Mark.
