Allerage Star, a 5-year-old daughter of Angus Hall out of the mare Starry Eyed (Muscles Yankee), owned by Jeff Gural’s Little E LLC, David Stolz, Arthur Geiger and Jason Settlemoir, earned $415,322 in 62 career starts. The “quick footed” mare won 17 of those starts, while finishing first, second or third 36 times. Allerage Star took a lifetime mark last year of 1:52.3f at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.
Allerage Star made her last career start at Harrah’s Philadelphia where she finished fourth and was immediately sent to New Bolton Veterinarian Clinic where the x-rays revealed a fractured pelvis. Allerage Star was immediately retired and sent home to Jeff and Paula Gural’s Allerage Farm in Stanfordville, N.Y., where she will be bred to Father Patrick.
Jeff Gural noted, “We had a lot of fun with Allerage Star. We thought she was ready for another big year and we staked her pretty heavily, but that’s horse racing. I look forward to seeing her babies racing on the track as she had a big heart with plenty of go. Hopefully that will translate into fast offspring.”
Allerage Farm has been in the Standardbred breeding industry since the late 1980s. Currently, they have two breeding facilities, one in Stanfordville, N.Y. and one in Sayre, Pa. Allerage Farm has more than 100 horses between the two locations.
