Hollywood Park notes: Doinghardtimeagain leaning toward Fleet Treat
INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Doinghardtimeagain may revert to California-bred stakes after winning her graded-stakes debut in the $150,000 Hollywood Oaks on Saturday.
Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said Sunday that Doinghardtimeagain is a candidate for the $200,000 Fleet Treat Stakes for California-bred 3-year-old fillies over seven furlongs at Del Mar on July 27. Another possible race for Doinghardtimeagain is the $300,000 Delaware Oaks over 1 1/16 miles at Delaware Park on July 13.
“We’ll consider both options, but we’ll look at the race at Del Mar,” Hollendorfer said. “If you can run at home, it’s easier than going on the road.”
Owned by Tom and Debra Stull, Doinghardtimeagain won her third consecutive stakes and the fourth of her career in the Grade 2 Hollywood Oaks. She led throughout the 1 1/16-mile race, winning by 2 1/2 lengths over Iotapa.
Doinghardtimeagain won the Evening Jewel Stakes over 6 1/2 furlongs at Santa Anita in March and the Melair Stakes over 1 1/16 miles here in April. She has won 5 of 9 starts and $573,770.
Kinsale King targeting Green Flash
Kinsale King, second in a five-furlong allowance race on turf last Friday in his first start in 21 months, will stay on turf at Del Mar this summer.
Trainer Carl O’Callaghan said the 8-year-old Kinsale King will be pointed for the $90,000 Green Flash Handicap over five furlongs on turf Aug. 14. Kinsale King had been sidelined because of recurring foot problems, O’Callaghan said.
“His feet are much better,” O’Callaghan said. “He needs eight or 10 weeks between races. The Green Flash is on my mind.”
Owned by Patrick Sheehy, Kinsale King is best known for winning the $2 million Golden Shaheen for sprinters in Dubai in 2010.
Boat Trip, who beat Kinsale King last Friday, will run in the $90,000 Wickerr Stakes over a mile on turf at Del Mar on July 24, trainer Mike Pender said.
