Allaire wins starter allowance at Arlington Park!
07/29/18 | Arlington Heights, IL – Dare To Dream Stable’s Allaire, making her first start for the stable today in race #7 at Arlington Park since being claimed 3 weeks back, won a 5 furlong turf dash by a measured 3/4 length leaving her connections feeling awfully happy with their newest acquisition. Allaire was coming off a sub-par effort in her last start when Dare To Dream Stable decided to put in a claim on the 5 yr old daughter of Arlington Million winner Cape Blanco. After a few weeks of fine tuning by trainer Chris Davis, it was time to see if those changes would produce winning results. Breaking from the 2 hole it was important for jockey Mitchell Murrill to get Allaire out in good order and establish a nice position right off the expected speed pair. Allaire broke sharply and Murrill was able to put the dark bay mare in 3rd right off the early pace setting duo and on the outside of those two dueling leaders. Allaire looked to be in the garden spot as she was shifted 3 wide at the 5/16th’s marker. She stayed 3 wide through the turn and into the lane where Murrill then engaged leader Sullyvin’s G G and kicked past her in the final furlong. She held the closers at bay to the wire to take the winning share of the $21,240 purse. While it was her first win with Dare To Dream Stable, Allaire now has 5 wins in her career with earnings of over $120,000.
Congratulations to the Dare To Dream Stable partners on the win and an astute claim. Hats off to trainer Chris Davis who did a fantastic job training this mare and making the necessary adjustments to improve her off the last race. This was also the first win for the stable with Chris since he joined the team earlier this Summer. He is off to a great start for the stable with a 3-1-1-1 record and is having a great Arlington meet overall. Chris is sure to have many more wins for Dare To Dream Stable in the near future! Thanks to jockey Mitchell Murrill who rode Allaire for the first time, but did a terrific job of having the mare in the perfect spot while guiding her to the victory.
