One Go All Go Leads All The Way In Elkhorn; Bullards Alley Euthanized For Left Hind Fracture

Rodney Paden’s One Go All Go took the lead out of the gate in Saturday’s Grade 2 Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes, and refused to relinquish it all the way down the lane to win by about a half-length over Oscar Nominated and Itsinthepost. The 6-year-old son of Fairbanks, ridden by Chris Landeros for trainer Scooter Dickey, completed 12 furlongs over Keeneland‘s firm turf course in 2:30.76. One Go All Go was 9-1 on the tote board; 2-1 favorite Itsinthepost was third.

“Great trip,” Landeros said. “He’s a pretty fast horse. He puts you in a good spot. (Trainer) Scooter (Dickey) had him ready as always. I appreciate him and the owner letting me ride the horse. He’s just a cool horse, and it seems like he’s getting better.”

Grade 1 winner Bullards Alley went wrong early in the Elkhorn, and was pulled up before crossing the wire for the first time. The gelding had to be euthanized due to a lateral condyle fracture in his left hind leg, according to bloodhorse.com.

“He ran third to my good horse, Flatlined, at Ellis Park last year (in the Cliff Guilliams Handicap in August),” Dickey said. “I told (owner) Mr. (Rodney) Paden, ‘He’s good enough to buy if he doesn’t bring too much.’ We got him.”

Bred in Virginia by Albert P. Coppola, One Go All Go was a $40,000 juvenile purchase at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale. Most recently, Dickey selected the horse at the Keeneland November sale for $62,000. The Elkhorn is his first graded win since 2015, and it improved his overall record to 4-5-3 from 24 starts, with earnings of over $600,000.
