Bootleg Annie risks streak


SAN MATEO, Calif. - Bootleg Annie seeks her fifth straight win in the fifth race Friday at Bay Meadows, a $25,000 claimer for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Most of her six rivals are in good form, including Rare Kristi and You Won't Like It, who are recent maiden winners; Rare and Wild, who has won 2 of her last 3 starts; Top of the Mornin, who has won 2 of her last 4; and Naiad's Daughter, the runner-up in her last two turf starts.

Since being claimed by trainer Dan Morgan for $5,000 from a victory at Turf Paradise, Bootleg Annie has made six starts, all on the turf. She won her turf debut, then ran third before starting a four-race win streak that includes a victory in the Wende Stakes on April 21 at Turf Paradise. Two starts ago, on May 10, she was claimed for $20,000 at Golden Gate by trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. She didn't run again until July 30, when she won a one-mile starter allowance.

In Friday's first race, a $5,000 claimer at 5 1/2 furlongs, Messner Mine puts a three-race win streak on the line against In My Life, who has won two straight, and For an Occasion and Tokayana Way, who have both won 2 of their last 3.

Messner Mine returns to the Bay Area after winning all three of her starts at Boise. In My Life comes off wins at Santa Rosa and the Bay Meadows Fair. For an Occasion won Aug. 2 at Santa Rosa following 7 1/2 months on the sidelines. Tokayana Way won two straight, both 4 1/2-furlong races at Los Alamitos, before having his win streak snapped on the turf Aug. 6 at Santa Rosa.

In the seventh, a $6,250 claimer at 5 1/2 furlongs, Zig Zag Zoom, comes in with a three-race win streak. He has not run since July 13 at Solano.

Millistocks Jumpin comes north off a pair of victories going 4 1/2 furlongs at Los Alamitos. Hot Tizzy has won 2 of 3, with the wins sandwiched around a second-place finish.

In the second race, a $32,000 claimer at one mile on the turf, Our Finale seeks a Northern California hat trick. He won at Santa Rosa on July 21 and repeated Aug. 11 at the Bay Meadows Fair, when he was claimed from trainer John Martin by trainer Billy Morey, who wins 33 percent off a claim.
