Al Stall customarily has all the stalls that he wants and/or needs at The Fairgrounds for the Fall/Winter/Spring race meet.  After all, he is one of the biggest supporters of racing in the Big Easy, easily running more horses than nearly every other person on the backside.

And, the horses filling those stalls — for Al Stall — are doing pretty well in the early stages of his endurance test for horses, trainers, and racetrack personnel.

Through Sunday, Stall has saddled 25 horses so far at the meet. That’s more horses than any other trainer at the meet so far. And, thanks to a red hot beginning, he still sits atop the Trainer Standings for this meet.

With those 25 starts, Stall has managed to get 9 wins, 5 seconds and 1 third for an impressive 36% win percentage. His horses have been either first, second or third 60% of the time. And, to date, his horses have amassed $264,550 in earnings.

Nice start.

But, despite the torrid beginning, Stall has company at the top of the leader board, Michael Stidham has already racked up 7 wins, 3 seconds and 3 thirds in 21 starts, and both Brad Cox and Joe Sharp have tallied five wins apiece, as well.
