According to Malcolm McAllister his star Flying Coal City a.k.a. "coal train," is recovering well and is expected to school mid February to prepare to defend his title in the Sprint Classic. The dual distance phenom who is arguably America's top dog (no argument from us) is waiting to see how the National awards pan out. Flying Coal City is eligible for all the national awards that include All America Team
Captain, Rural Rube ( for best sprinter) and the Flashy Sir (for top distance). Good luck!
