Cal Expo: Distaffers clash in Alan Kirschenbaum Final

Distaffers clash in Alan Kirschenbaum Final
By Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness
 
A solid group of pacing fillies and mares will do battle in Friday night’s $8,300 Alan Kirschenbaum Final, with last week’s Prep victress Cenalta Diamond and Blue Note heading the cast.
 
Cenalta Diamond is a 5-year-old daughter of Allamerican Merlin who carries the banner of Gordon, Helen and Myrna Empey with Gordon Empey the conditioner and Mooney Svendsen in his usual place in the sulky. Those same connections will also be represented by Cenalta Artistry in the main event and she will have the services of Rene Goulet.
 
Cenalta Diamond was dispatched at 7-1 in last weekend’s Kirschenbaum Prep, was able to work out a ground-saving tracking trip for Svendsen and ignited when room developed late in the drive to prevail by two lengths in a lifetime best 1:53 2/5 clocking.
 
Blue Note is going in razor-sharp form at the moment and came rolling late to get the place spot in that affair for owner/trainer Rick Cisco and pilot Luke Plano. The 13-year-old daughter of Little Steven accounted for two of her three previous outings while putting her versatility on display.
 
Shesamysterytome was the 9-5 favorite in the Prep and carved out all the fractions before tiring to fourth that evening. She is owned by Ashlee Sluggett and Trevor Williams, is reined-and-trained by Ryan Grundy and was a 1:54 2/5 victress here earlier the meeting.
 
Rounding out the field are Smash, who will have the services of William Hernandez; La Madawna De Rosa with Gerry Longo; Back Stock, to be guided by Steve Wiseman; and Getter Queen Flush with Nick Roland at the controls.

There is a carryover of $5,281 in Friday’s 50-cent Pick 5, which covers the first five races and comes with a reduced 16 percent takeout rate. There will be a $20,000-guaranteed gross pool.
