Greny tough to beat

Email

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Greny, who is two-for-two since returning from a year layoff, heads a field of six fillies and mares in the $32,000 allowance feature at six furlongs at Bay Meadows Friday night.

Greny returned to the races on Mar. 22 at Golden Gate Fields and won a $20,000 claiming race by a head. Trainer William E. Morey claimed her in the process. Morey brought her back April 15 in a first-level allowance/$25,000 optional claiming race, and she zipped to a wire-to-wire, four-length victory. A 5-year-old mare, she had won two allowance races earlier in her career, and was in for the optional claiming price. She is right back in for the same tag Friday.

The main threats appear to be Felicity Rose and Fancee Bargain. Felicity Rose, like Greny, is not eligible under the allowance conditions and is in for the tag. She was claimed by her current trainer, Frank Monteleone, on March 15 at Golden Gate for $20,000. She finished third that day, then won when Monteleone brought her back for the same tag six weeks later.

Fancee Bargain, from the Art Sherman stable, has not started in more than a year. But the 5-year-old mare fits with these if she's ready, and she has been training well.

Euchre heads All American field

Euchre, a Grade 2 stakes-winner from the Bobby Frankel stable, is expected to head a field of at least five in the $150,000, Grade 3 All American Handicap at 1 1/16 miles on Monday.

In his last start, Euchre finished fourth in the Grade 2 Mervyn LeRoy Handicap at Hollywood Park. Last year, he won three of seven starts, including the Grade 2 Bel Air Handicap, also at Hollywood Park. Euchre will carry co-highweight of 118 pounds.

Others expected to start, as of Wednesday: Irisheyesareflying, Russell Baze; Jorrocks, Jose Arriaga; Boss Ego, Ron Warren, and New Advantage, A. D. Lopez.

In addition, the following are listed as possible starters: Milk Wood; Moonlight Charger; Red Eye; Dhaffir, and Radar Contact.
