Formal Flyer Seeks Better Racing Luck in Saturday's JEH Stallion Station Stakes at LSP

Grand Prairie, Texas (April 7, 2010) - Saturday’s 14th running of the $50,000 JEH Stallion Station Stakes, for accredited Texas-bred fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and upward, to be run at 6 ½ furlongs over the main track, has attracted a full field of 12.
Formal Flyer, owned by John Silverthorne Ranch Inc., and trained by Danny Pish, was a tough-luck fourth-place finisher in the 2009 running of the JEH Stallion Station Stakes, a race that saw her get trapped behind horses along the rail at the top of the stretch. A chestnut daughter of Early Flyer, Formal Flyer was victorious in the $125,000 Texas Stallion Stakes over the Lone Star Park main track in 2008.

“She’s a real campaigner and typically runs her race,” said trainer Danny Pish. “She’s really been training well this year, and her last three workouts were just what we were looking for.”

This year’s renewal of the JEH Stallion Station Stakes has attracted a competitive cast, including the Bret Calhoun-trained Tin Top Cat, a multiple stakes winner who has won four of six starts for $195,324.

Also of note, No Other Tone, owned by Lone Star Park’s all-time leading owner Tom Durant and trained by Jack Bruner, is a winner of three of four starts around the Grand Prairie oval, and Valid Code, trained by Lone Star Park’s all-time leading trainer Steve Asmussen, who has won five of eight starts for $98, 914 in earnings.

The JEH Stallion Station Stakes is scheduled as race nine on the 11-race program with an approximate post time of 5:19 CDT.

The field from the rail out, with jockey and morning line odds listed in parenthesis, consists of: Amozan Ruler (Martin Escobar, 20-1); Formal Flyer (Junior Chacaltana, 12-1); Tin Top Cat (Bobby Walker Jr., 8-1); Joy’s Paradise (Eguard Tejera, 20-1); Moneyinmywranglers (Alfredo Contreras, 15-1); Wrenice (Don Pettinger, 12-1); Naevus Girl (Paul Nolan, 5-1 ); No Other Tone (Rohan Singh, 2-1 ); Notorious Delight (Erik McNeil, 15-1 ); Valid Code (Chris Landeros, 5-2); Judy’s Cure (Bryan McNeil, 20-1 ), and Dixie Dust (Jeremy Collier, 5-1).
