This handsome 3-year-old gelding is Allstar, a son of Flower Alley trained by Marcus Vitali. He ran 4th on the turf in the James W. Murphy Stakes at Pimlico on the Preakness undercard, and I thought he was absolutely stunning. Allstar tried Grade 1 company in the Florida Derby earlier this year, but came in a distant last to the winner, Constitution.
