Email

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - With the Sunshine Millions stakes for California-breds and Florida-breds a little more than a month away, the California-bred females Alphabet Kisses, Dancing General, and Proposed will have preps in separate races at Hollywood Park on Friday.

Alphabet Kisses, best known for winning the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita last December, is entered in a $57,000 allowance race for fillies and mares over six furlongs, the day's second race.

Owned by Harris Farms, is the most accomplished of the five fillies and mares entered in the race. She won the Grade 2 A Gleam Handicap over seven furlongs here in July, but has not started since finishing last in the Clement Hirsch Handicap at Del Mar in August.

Alphabet Kisses will race without blinkers for the first time in seven starts.

Her main competition is Behaving Badly, the winner of the Grade 3 Rancho Bernardo Handicap at Del Mar last August for trainer Bob Baffert.

, third in the California Cup Matron at Santa Anita last month, is one of two John Shirreffs-trained horses who will run in a $49,000 allowance race for fillies and mares over 1 1/16 miles, the fourth race. Shirreffs has also entered Shimmer, a promising 3-year-old filly by Pulpit.

Proposed has won 3 of her last 5 starts, with the wins coming against maidens and in allowance races.

Shimmer has won her last two starts, but has been off since Del Mar. She was entered for the Audrey Skirball-Kenis Stakes last month but did not start because of a minor foot injury, Shirreffs said.

Proposed and Shimmer have four opponents, including Fast Navy. A Brazilian import trained by Paulo Lobo, Fast Navy won an allowance race by six lengths in her U.S. debut at Bay Meadows on Sept. 2, and was third in an optional claimer at Golden Gate Fields in November.

will be favored in the seventh race, a $46,000 allowance race for fillies and mares over 1 1/16 miles.

Trained by Rafael Becerra, Dancing General was a game second to Moscow Burning in the California Cup Distance Handicap at Santa Anita on Oct. 6. Friday's seventh race could serve as a prep to one of two $500,000 Sunshine Millions races over 1 1/8 miles on Jan. 28 - the Distaff on dirt at Santa Anita or the Filly and Mare Turf on grass at Gulfstream Park.
