Pennsylvania's Fox Tale on TrueNicks

Latest in the growing band of regional farms to sign its stallions up for TrueNicks is Fox Tale Farm of Coopersburg, Penn.

Fox Tale has added a graded stakes winning trio in Pies Prospect (TrueNicks), Request for Parole (TrueNicks), and Smart Guy (TrueNicks). Pies Prospect - (Crafty Prospector - Hot Pillow, by Bates Motel) won six races and over $700,000, including the Pegasus Stakes and the Fred W. Hooper Handicap (both gr. III) and the Floor Show Stakes, and also earned grade I placings with an impressive second in the Donn Handicap and a third in the Haskell Invitational Handicap. He entered stud in 2007.

The In Reality-line stallion Request for Parole (Judge T C - Madison's Quest, by Deputy Minister) is a multiple graded stakes winner of almost $1.4 million. Winner of the Ellis Park Juvenile at 2, he also placed second in two juvenile graded stakes. At 3 he added the WEBN Frog Stakes and John Battaglia Memorial Stakes. It was at 5, however, that Request for Parole reached the heights, switching to the turf to take the Mac Diarmida Handicap (gr. III) and United Nations Stakes (gr. I), as well as taking second in the Sword Dancer Invitational Stakes (gr. I). He again took home earnings in the grade I United Nations Stakes at age 6, taking third. Request for Parole enters stud this year.

Smart Guy (Smarten - Royal Tali, by Talc) is a local hero, having won the Pennsylvania Derby (gr. III), as well as the Northern Dancer Stakes, Francis "Jock" LaBelle Memorial Stakes, and Deputed Testamony Stakes. From a handful of foals of racing age, he is sire of three winners from five runners, including Secretintelligence, a multiple stakes winner of $272,980, including the Captain My Captain Handicap.
