Allowance, One Mile, $57,500, 3 year olds & up, Time: 1:34.57
Allied Air Raid took down a group of Allowance horses at Churchill Downs on Friday, June 3rd. Second start off the layoff he broke and relaxed under Florent Geroux sitting in third position down the backstretch of the one turn mile. He loomed up three wide at the top of the stretch and took control with a 1/16th remaining. He put Teniente Coronel away in the final strides and won gearing down by one length.
This was Allied Air Raid’s second start since getting a winter freshening. Last year he ran 3rd in the Prairie Mile Stakes, 2nd in the (G3) Iowa Derby, 2nd in the Prelude, and 3rd in the (G2) Super Derby. He has been off the board only once in 10 career starts and just hit the $250,000 earnings mark.
He will point for a Graded Stake next.
