'Allmyxs,' 'Best' Square Off At Expo

Published: March 12, 2020 04:55 pm EDT

Allmyxsliventexas and Bestintehbusiness, who have been chasing home the razor sharp Heza Real Diamond of late, get away from that rival and head the cast in Friday night’s (March 13) $5,100 Open II Pace at Cal-Expo.

There will also be a pair of $7,000 California Sire Stakes for three-year-old pacers. Prom Queen is likely to get top billing in the filly division, while Its Pointless is strictly the one to beat in the male section, scheduled as a non-betting affair prior to the regular card.

There are 11 races on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post at 6:10 p.m. Pacific time.

Allmyxsliventexas comes into the Friday assignment with some impressive credentials. The seven-year-old son of Hi Ho Silverheels has won 36 of his 119 starts, has $214,000 in his bank account, and sports a 1:50 lifetime standard that was established two years ago at Hoosier Park.

The hard-hitting veteran is owned and was bred by Wayne and Rod Knittel, conditioned by Bob Johnson, and Mooney Svendsen will be in his usual position in the sulky.

Allmyxsliventexas recorded his most recent tally on Jan. 25, when he sat the pocket behind the aforementioned Heza Real Diamond and nailed him right on the money in a 1:50.2 tour.

Bestinthebusiness is in fine form at the moment with a conditioned victory and back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Open level. He campaigns for Brett Boyd Racing Inc., hails from the Leon Smith barn, and has Braxten Boyd once again giving direction. Almost Cut My Hair, Part Time and Queenace Blue Chip complete the field.

Prom Queen, Its Pointless look to continue dominance

Prom Queen and Its Pointless cemented their positions at the head of their respective sophomore California Sire Stakes divisions with clear-cut victories in last week’s second round of action and will be back seeking more trophies on Friday night.

Prom Queen is a daughter of Little Steven who has captured both of her stakes dances in impressive come-from-behind style, while Its Pointless has dominated his male rivals while going off the solid choice in both appearances.

Racing for owner-trainer Robin Clements, Prom Queen has shown a real affinity for coming home in a hurry with Nick Roland giving directions.

She had 4-1/4 lengths on favourite Debit Or Credit in last weekend’s tour while lowering her mark to 1:58.1 in the process. “I love this filly and she is fast,” pilot Roland related after the score.

“She is still green and learning to race,” added Clements, “but she’s getting there. She is a bit of a princess in that if you change her equipment and she doesn’t like it, she will throw a tantrum.”

It seems the name Prom Queen fits this three-year-old filly perfectly and it also appears as though many more winner’s circle appearances are in her future.

As for her male counterpart, Its Pointless just goes to the front and widens from there, with the Mark Anderson-owned, Gordie Graham-trained, James Kennedy-driven son of Kents On Nuke currently too much for his rivals.
