Russell L. Reineman Stable's Pretty Gale, a half-sister of Illinois Derby winner War Emblem, beat Lunar Star by 7 1/4 lengths in the $100,000 Lady Hallie Handicap at Sportsman's Park on Sunday.
Illinois Derby (gr. II) winner War Emblem was shipped to Kentucky by van Sunday, but the son of Our Emblem is still not considered a likely Kentucky Derby (gr. I) starter.
California trainer David La Croix verbalized what most of the entrants were thinking in the days leading up to the April 6 Illinois Derby (gr. II) when he said he was looking for a "back door" to the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) for Fonz's.
