Anziyan Royalty best in On Trust

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Anziyan Royalty trains year-round at Hollywood Park. Too bad he can't race there every time, too. On Saturday, Anziyan Royalty ran his Hollywood Park record to a perfect 4-for-4 with a game victory over a stubborn Lava Man in the $89,200 for California-breds.

Anziyan Royalty ($7.40) got a cozy trip from his outside post in the 7 1/2-furlong race after hopping awkwardly at the start. He sat just off early leader Excess Summer, moved up four paths wide on the turn to engage for the lead, then finally put away Lava Man to prevail by one length.

Lava Man, who was part of a four-horse battle for the lead on the far turn, was five lengths clear of third-place Jack's Silver, who rallied from last in the field of eight to finish third. Areyoutalkintome, the 5-2 favorite, never threatened and finished fourth. Excess Summer, who won the On Trust last year, faded to finish seventh after setting fractions of 22.25 seconds for the opening quarter mile and a swift 44.26 seconds for a half-mile.

Anziyan Royalty, ridden by David Flores, completed 7 1/2 furlongs on the fast main track in 1:27.30.

"Four for four. I love this track, and the horse does, too," said Craig Dollase, who trains Anziyan Royalty. "I've battled some feet problems with this horse over the years, and a little cushion helps, I think."

Anziyan Royalty, a 4-year-old colt, was bred and is owned by Nick Cafarchia. He has now won six of 14 starts. He most recently had finished third in the California Cup Classic. Dollase said Anziyan Royalty would likely make his next start in the Grade 3, $100,000 Native Diver Handicap on Dec. 11.
