John Martin Silvertand, who bred champion and dual classic winner Afleet Alex, died Jan. 7 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Afleet Alex, the 2-year-old colt who amuses himself by playing with a blue rubber ball suspended in his stall at Lone Star Park, showed his affinity for the Grand Prairie track Monday when he zipped five furlongs in :58 2/5.
