Alltheshine Goes for DMIII Triple Crown

Undefeated filly attempts to win final leg of Dutch Masters III Triple Crown.

September 7, 2012

Undefeated 2-year-old filly Alltheshine goes for the Dutch Masters III Triple Crown at Ida Racing at Sandy Downs this Sunday in the $40,000-est. Hawthorne Futurity.

The Louisiana-bred Alltheshine (First To Shine-Menoalamo by Streakin La Jolla) captured the first two legs of the Triple Crown at Emmett and Jerome County Fair tracks in the Idaho series, winning the Gem Co. Futurity in April and the Dutch Masters III Futurity in June. Alltheshine races for owners Kim and Janyce Paulsen of the Movin On Stables.

The Guy Weeks-charge took the Dutch Masters III Futurity at the Jerome County Fair, covering the 350 yards in :17.729 with Dallas Erickson aboard, holding off Bekas Ima Snazzysign by a nose. Alltheshine won her qualifying race for the Hawthorne at Sandy Downs on August 25. By sweeping the Dutch Masters III Triple Crown, she would earn a $25,000 for her owners.

However, Alltheshine is not the morning line favorite for the stake, which has Larryville (Stel Corona-Ynot Bar by Chicks Beduino) installed as the 8-5 choice.  The Dan Moon-owned gelding was a game winner in his August 25 tune up, finishing the 350 yards in :17.867 as the fastest qualifying time for the Hawthorne Futurity.

A field of 10 is expected to race with a post time of the fifth race at approximately 3:00 MDT. 

Sunday’s co-feature is the $22,000 Hadtobenuts Derby with The Streakin Clean (Streakin La Jolla-Theslatesclean by Corona Cocktail) set as the 2-1 favorite in the field of 10 at 400 yards.  The filly is coming off back-to-back scores at Les Bois Park and Sandy Downs with jockey and attorney Nikeela Black on board once again.

The seventh race on Sunday’s card will feature 10 strong contenders for the Merial Sandy Downs Distaff Challenge at 400 yards with a purse of $21,000.  They will be seeking to qualify for the $125,000 finals at Prairie Meadows on October 27.

Sunday is Family Day at Sandy Downs with plenty of entertainment for all.  Gates open at 12 noon with post time for the first race at 1 p.m.  After Sunday’s card, weekend racing will take place September 15-30 with post time on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m.  For more information, visit IdaRacing.com or call 208-520-5688.
