Saturday Advance

Open Paces get the marquee treatment

A $7,000 Open Pace featuring Last Dragon and Allmyx’sliventexas and a $6,000 Distaff Open Pace that provides a rematch between Capitol Hill and Legio X Equestris are in the spotlight at Cal Expo Saturday night.

A nine-race card will be presented by Watch and Wager LLC with first post set for 6:10 p.m.

Last Dragon is an 11-year-old son of Dragon’s Lair who is owned by Paul Blumenfeld and is reined and trained by Chip Lackey. He comes into this assignment with eight wins from his 31 trips to the post this season and a 1:49 3/5 mark that was established two years ago.

Sent off the 8-5 second choice in last weekend’s Open, Last Dragon shot right to the front for Lackey, carved out modest fractions and then blasted home to prevail by two lengths in a 1:53 3/5 performance.

Allmyx’sliventexas made an impressive return to California in a conditioned event on that same program, making 50 cents on the dollar look like a gift as he romped home by four and a half-lengths with Mooney Svendsen in a 1:52 2/5 tour. He lands the rail for Saturday’s assignment.

A multiple stakes winner over this track the past few seasons, the Hi Ho Silverheels homebred goes about his business for Wayne and Rod Knittel with Bob Johnson the conditioner. He went over the $150,000 earnings mark with his victory and has a 1:50 career standard that was established this year at Hoosier Park.

Capitol Hill is a 7-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover out of the No Pan Intended mare Champagne Blue Chip who carries the banner of George McChrystal and Kathie Plested with Plested training and Mooney Svendsen back in the sulky. She left into a pocket trip last week and overpowered heavy favorite Legio X Equestris in that contest.
