Always About Katey Shines in American National


Always About Katey
Always About Katey
Always About Katey captured the $113,000 American National Stake for freshman pacing fillies in a career best 1:53.1 Saturday night, Nov. 10 at Balmoral Park in suburban Crete, IL.

Trained by Roger Welch and driven by Todd Warren, the daughter of Always A Virgin pocketed $61,020, upping her lifetime bankroll to $406,295.

After stealing the lead away from Incredible Filly (John Roberts) just past the :29.1 opening panel, Always About Katey took her five rivals to a :56.1 half and 1:25 three-quarters.

“She’s always been a strong filly since her first start,” Warren offered. “She was really sharp again tonight and Roger (trainer Welch) did a great job of prepping her for this race.”

Always About Katey used a :28.1 final panel brush to score her tenth win in 12 career starts for owners William C Delong of Wisconson, William P Delong of Illinois, and Katey McClymont of Wisconsin.

“She was the dominate filly in Indiana this season,” Warren noted. “In her last start there, I came fourth over at the top of the stretch and she was just tremendous. She’s very powerful.”

Auniqueaquistion (Mike Oosting) was second by 3 ½ lengths, while Incredible Filly held on for third.
