All The Time
displayed symptoms of colic early Sunday,
roughly 14 hours after winning the Hambletonian Oaks at the
Meadowlands Racetrack, and was taken to Mid-Atlantic Equine
Medical Center, where intestinal surgery was performed.
Takter said he was notified this morning that the 3-year-old
female trotter was recovering nicely and normal intestinal
function appeared to have resumed.
“We were very fortunate,” Takter said. “They did a fantastic
job at Mid-Atlantic to do what they did. She is going to be
there for four or five days so they can monitor her. But as
of this morning everything was working well, so that is good.”
All The Time is owned by Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld, who
also bred the filly. She won Saturday’s $500,000
Hambletonian Oaks by 3-3/4 lengths over Caprice Hill in
1:52.1, giving Takter his third consecutive win in the Oaks
and his sixth champion overall, tying Jan Johnson for the
most in history.
A daughter of stallion Muscle Hill out of the stakes-winning
mare Cantab It All, All The Time has won 11 of 19 career
races and earned $827,616. In addition to the Hambletonian
Oaks, her victories include the 2015 Breeders Crown for
2-year-old filly trotters and the 2015 New Jersey Sire
All The Time was the first foal out of Cantab It All. The
second, Ariana G, is undefeated in four races and won
Saturday’s Jim Doherty Memorial at the Meadowlands. She is a
full sister to All The Time.
Takter was uncertain of All The Time’s future, saying it
would take more than a month for the filly to recover from
“The chances that she is going to race again are 50-50 at
best,” Takter said. “Maybe I can have her ready for the
Breeders Crown (in late October) but she will let me know.
I’m not going to do anything to jeopardize her health. She
is such a unique horse and her family is great. We are
grateful for what she has done.”
