Arch Hall homeward bound

Eugene Melnyk's homebred 5-year-old ARCH HALL will soon be headed back to Woodbine and trainer Mark Casse following a tough loss in yesterday's Fifth Season Stakes (Gr. 3) at Oaklawn Park.
The son of Archers Bay had an ideal trip throughout the 1 1/16 mile race and, when he shook free at the head of the stretch, stormed to a short lead. The horse led at the eighth pole but was surprised in the final furlong by outside Kid Grindstone, who rallied from behind the Melnyk star.
Melnyk farm manager Phil Hronec said Arch Hall could be "a serious horse" at Woodbine this season.

At Keeneland today, Hall of Fame trainer Roger Attfield has three horses entered including Canada's 2004 yearling sale topper, SHADOW RUSH, a Queen's plate eligible. The son of Skywalker was still figuring out the game last year and may find his calling on the grass back at Woodbine.
