Alborano Not Worried About 10-Hole

His Pacific Fella horse may have drawn Post 10 for the $600,000 William R. Haughton Memorial this Saturday at the Meadowlands Racetrack, but by the sounds of it owner Joseph Alborano isn't worrying.

"It's all right," Alborano told the Staten Island Advance about Artistic Fella. "If he's as good as he was in the Ben Franklin, he's got a shot."

In the $500,00 Ben Franklin, which took place June 15 at Chester Downs in Pennsylvania, the $2.1 million career winner scorched the five-eighths mile oval for a World Record 1:48 victory.

Alborano also told the Staten Island Advance that if the horse is to be retired at the end of the year, he will be retaining a controlling interest.
