Hollywood Park: Sahara Sky may head east again for Forego

Sahara Sky has won 7 of 16 starts and $886,680.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Sahara Sky, winner of the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park in May and two other stakes earlier this year, is in light training and could reappear in the $500,000 Forego Stakes at Saratoga on Aug 31, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said.

Last month, Hollendorfer said Sahara Sky could start at Del Mar, but that plan was considered unlikely earlier this week.

“This is the time of year we back up a little bit,” Hollendorfer said. “We were thinking of the Bing Crosby, but I’m not anxious to run in that race.”

The Bing Crosby Stakes is run over six furlongs on the Polytrack synthetic surface at Del Mar on July 28.

A winner of 7 of 16 starts and $886,680 for Hollendorfer and Kim Lloyd, Sahara Sky won two sprint stakes at Santa Anita earlier this year – the Palos Verdes and San Carlos Stakes at Santa Anita.

Sahara Sky has not had a recorded workout since June 22. Hollendorfer said that Sahara Sky could have a workout in coming days.

The Forego Stakes is run over seven furlongs.
