INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Tres Borrachos, who finished third in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile in his last start, heads the prospective field for the Grade 3, $100,000 Native Diver Handicap at 1 1/8 miles for older horses on Saturday.

Tres Borrachos owns four lifetime wins, three of which have come at Hollywood Park. He is 3 for 12 on the main track here, 1 for 22 in every other situation. His biggest win here came in the Swaps Stakes in 2008.

In addition to Tres Borrachos, others expected for the Native Diver are Kettle Corn, Rescue Squad, Summer Movie, and Eldaafer, the winner of the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Marathon, who recently joined the barn of trainer Brian Koriner. Eldaafer most recently was sixth in this year’s Breeders’ Cup Marathon.

Hollendorfer has 1-2 punch in Bayakoa

Jerry Hollendorfer shares a stable at Hollywood Park with another Hall of Fame trainer, Ron McAnally, so perhaps some of that karma will pay off when Hollendorfer sends out a pair of fillies on Sunday in quest of the Grade 2, $150,000 Bayakoa Handicap, a race named for a two-time Breeders’ Cup winner that McAnally trained.

Hollendorfer will be represented by City to City and Washington Bridge in the 1 1/16-mile race. City to City is moving back to the main track after a sharp series of races on turf, most recently a second-place finish behind McAnally’s All Star Heart in the Las Palmas at Santa Anita.

In addition to Hollendorfer’s duo, others expected for the Bayakoa are Bauble Queen, Champagne d’Oro, Ellafitz, Love Theway Youare, and Miss Mittagong.

Home Sweet Aspen, who won the Lou Rowan at Santa Anita in her last start, will be kept around one turn and point for the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita, according to her trainer, John Sadler.

◗ Chantal Sutherland, a native of Canada, will miss the weekend stakes at Hollywood Park in order to ride the closing weekend stakes at Woodbine in Toronto.
