Hollywood: Turbulent Descent stars


Turbulent Descent has never run in a graded stakes, but she will command ample respect when she starts in the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes on Dec. 11.

In Sunday's $100,000 Moccasin Stakes, Turbulent Descent ($3.40) stalked the pace three-wide, put away three other runners who were near the frontand was hand ridden to the wire by jockey David Flores to win by 1 1-2 lengths. The style of the win over seven furlongs suggests that the Starlet around 1 1-16 miles should not be a difficult transition.

Unbeaten in two starts, the filly has a world of potential and has not been asked for a top effort yet. She is firmly a filly to follow in coming months.
