VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Trainer Terry Jordan is hoping his hot streak continues when he sends out Calendar Girl in the $50,000 Supernaturel Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Hastings Saturday. The 1 1/16-mile feature drew eight horses.

Jordan, who won stakes races at Woodbine last weekend with True Metropolitan and Dancing Allstar, is expecting a big effort from Calendar Girl. Calendar Girl was a very impressive winner of the Mount Royal Stakes at Stampede Park May 6, but she finished well back when she ran in the Grade 3 Selene at Woodbine May 20. Jordan brought her back to Stampede Park for the $75,000 Penny Ridge Stakes June 17, and she finished third, nearly 20 lengths behind the winner, Forest Huntress.

Jordan blamed a speed bias for Calendar Girl's performance in the Penny Ridge. "If you didn't break on top you really didn't have much of a chance," he said.

Felipe Valdez will ride Calendar Girl.

Pretty Maid has won both of her races at the meet, and the late-running filly should get a good pace to close into on Saturday. Trained by Shauna Ferguson, Pretty Maid made up 12 lengths to win a maiden special weight sprint April 28. In her next start, June 9, she made a strong move in the stretch to win a 1 1/16-mile allowance race.

Napa also does her best running late. She came from last to win the 6 1/2-furlong Emerald Downs Stakes at Hastings May 20 and then finished second to Pretty Maid June 9.
