Hollywood: Magic Launch's level

Email

Optional claimers for California-breds work well for Magic Launch.

The 5-year-old mare won an optional claimer for statebred females on Aug. 28 when she was not entered for a claiming price, and followed that with a seventh against open company on Oct. 3.

Saturday, Magic Launch ($5.80) was back in an optional claimer for statebred females, this time for a $25,000 claiming price, and won comfortably, rallying from off the pace to prevail by 1 1-4 lengths over Spanish Bunny.

Trained by Bill Spawr, Magic Launch has won 4 of 15 starts and $133,880. She could reappear in those sort of race in the future and would figure to have an excellent chance, and could even attract a claim.
