American Gal

American Gal

American Gal won easily by two and a quarter lengths at first asking at Del Mar in August going five and a half furlongs. She followed that up with a six-and-a-half length romp in the Anoakia Stakes at Santa Anita Oct. 23 in a prep for the 14 Hands Winery Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Bet down to 1-10, the Concord Point filly was off a step slow, then sat behind dueling leaders until making a move at the half. She ran the six furlongs in 1:10.46.

American Gal races as a homebred for Kaleem Shah. He also owned Concord Point, who Baffert trained. Concord Point won the Iowa Derby and West Virginia Derby in 2010.

He and trainer Bob Baffert teamed up to take the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic with Bayern.

Shah is a native of India, where his father trained horses. He holds three degrees, including a MBA from George Washington University in International Finance, and founded CalNet in 1989. The communications company provides intelligence analysis and a wide variety of other services for its clients, which includes the U.S. Federal Government.
