Livermore Valley should get a good trip behind an abundance of speed in the Randaroo.

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - The last week of racing before Aqueduct takes a nine-day holiday break begins Wednesday with a nine-race card highlighted by the $65,000 Randaroo Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at six furlongs. The Randaroo was originally scheduled for last Friday, but that card was canceled due to a forecasted snowstorm.

Eight of the nine fillies scheduled to run last Friday were entered back while trainer Ben Perkins Jr. took advantage of the extra time to enter Carryanun, a sharp maiden winner over Aqueduct's main track on Nov. 6.

Of the original eight, is the most accomplished, having won the Colleen Stakes at Monmouth Park on Aug. 6. She has not run since then because of a severe case of colic diagnosed about two weeks after that race.

"She had surgery following the Colleen to alleviate a twisted intestine,'' Ryerson said. "It went well and everything has worked out.''

Livermore Valley had been training regularly at Monmouth and shows two good works at Belmont, including a three-furlong blowout in a bullet 35.15 seconds last Wednesday.

Livermore Valley drew post 4 - the same post she was assigned last week - and gets the services of Julian Pimentel.

Livermore Valley, who won the Colleen from just off the pace, looks like she could get a stalking trip in a field seemingly loaded with speed.

Silvestris, trained by Tom Albertrani, looks to be perhaps the fastest of the early speed types and cuts back a furlong after losing an allowance race by a neck to Swap Fliparoo. Two starts back, Silvestris won a five-furlong maiden race by two lengths, earning a solid Beyer Speed Figure of 86. Jose Espinoza, who has two stakes wins at this meet, takes over for Eibar Coa, who on Monday began serving a seven-day riding suspension.

The Char-Mari Stable of Charlie and Marianne Hesse sends out the coupled entry of Jet Set Broad and Successful Romance. Jet Set Broad, trained by Jason Servis, won a maiden race at The Meadowlands by five. Successful Romance won her maiden at first asking in April but has been beaten three times in a row since. In her last race, however, she finished just one length behind Miraculous Miss, who won the Grade 3 Valley Stream Stakes in her next start and who is 3 for 3.

Carryanun, who was not entered for this race last Friday, won her maiden by 6 3/4 lengths on Nov. 6 and has come back with two excellent works since for Perkins.
