Allthatgltrsisgold ($6) pounced off a perfect second-over trip to win the $78,000 Aquarius final Saturday night at Meadowlands Racetrack. Driven by Ron Pierce, Allthatgltrisgold slingshot past his cover Code Word in the stretch and drew off to a three-length tally in 1:51.2. Foreign Officer edged Whiskey Pete for third.
"He showed a lot of ability as a 2 year old, but he needed some management to control him and race him off the pace like this," noted Indiana-based trainer Bobby Brower, who sent the pacer to Ray and Larry Remmen for his winter stakes campaign at the Meadowlands. "We taught him how, he responded very well and it looks like he is turning into the horse we thought he was going to be. He had a very good (3-year-old) season and made a lot of money. He wasn't one of the best, but he was a Class B horse that picked up a lot of money.
"He is getting on the truck Monday and going back to Indiana," Brower continued. "We'll start prepping him for the Dan Patch and hopefully send him back to Ray in August for the big free-for-all races."
Now three for four this season, Allthatgltrsisgold earned more than $400,000 in 2010 while racing in a 3-year-old division dominated by Horse of the Year frontrunner Rock N Roll Heaven. Veterinarians Jeff and Maria King, who operate Victory Hill Farm in Langrange, Ind., bred and own the son of Cam's Card Shark-Glitter N Glitz. (Meadowlands)
