Jordan has tough pair for sprint

Email

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Trainer Terry Jordan appears to have two live horses in the feature race at Hastings Sunday, a $25,000 claiming sprint for fillies and mares.

Jordan will saddle Hunting for Action and Regal Heir and they will run as separate betting entities.

Hunting for Action makes her first start since being claimed by Jordan, and there should be enough pace to set up her good late move. She won a $25,000 sprint June 26, but finished a dull fourth when she ran back for the same price July 18. Since moving to Jordan's care, Hunting for Action had a very sharp four-furlong move in 47.40 seconds Aug. 8. She should get a good trip leaving from the 1-hole with Chad Hoverson aboard.

Regal Heir has won two races at the meet and comes into Sunday's race off of a fifth-place finish in the British Columbia Cup Distaff Stakes Aug. 2. She won a $25,000 claiming race April 18 and came right back to beat a sharp April Foolish in a $35,000 optional sprint May 15.

Other than her fifth-place finish in the Distaff, Regal Heir has hit the board in all of her races this year and she has enough speed to stay in touch with On High or Lost All Control, who figure to be among the early leaders.

On High has started only three times in her career, but she has shown some talent. She broke her maiden for $25,000 in her debut race May 29 and then finished third in a $35,000 optional sprint July 1 and last in the B.C. Distaff.
