'Dreams' ready as she'll ever be

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - After five career starts, all on turf, and two wins, Live Your Dreams looks ready to make her stakes debut in Sunday's $250,000 Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap at Hollywood Park. The Grade 2 Honeymoon, run over 1 1/4 miles on turf, is for 3-year-old fillies.

There are few throwouts in the field of nine, which includes four stakes winners: OK to Dance (120 pounds), Innit (117), Allright Now (117), and Dynamous (115). None of the entrants has been 1 1/4 miles on turf, a new distance for the Honeymoon, and none has run for this much prize money.

Live Your Dreams, who was assigned 114 pounds, is a closer who won her last start in an allowance race over 1 1/16 miles on turf on June 8, the longest race of her career. Trainer Neil Drysdale is not concerned about the Honeymoon distance.

"I think her style should be helped [by the distance]," Drysdale said. "She relaxes."

Live Your Dreams won a maiden race last December at Santa Anita and was second in two allowance races on turf earlier at this meeting, losing to Honeymoon opponent Beefeater Baby and to Affluent, who went on to finish third in the Grade 2 Princess Stakes on June 16.

Beefeater Baby will be well-supported on Sunday, having finished third in the Flawlessy Stakes in her stakes debut on May 28. In that race, she was rank early and was three wide on the final turn, losing by 2 3/4 lengths to Voodoo Dancer.

Beefeater Baby is trained by Bobby Frankel, who also starts Dynamous, the winner of the restricted Providencia Stakes at Santa Anita in April and fourth last out in the Flawlessly.

Innit, the runner-up in the Flawlessly, returns in the Honeymoon, but may not be favored. OK to Dance, who won the Palisades Stakes at Keeneland and the minor Gaily Gaily Stakes at Gulfstream Park earlier this year, may have that role. She has not started since winning the Palisades, but shows a steady pattern of workouts at Calder, where trainer Marty Wolfson is based.

Others with outside chances include Golden Sparrow, a two-time winner in England, and Allright Now, the winner of the Bay Meadows Oaks in May.
