Mother Nature foils Jordan's plan

Email

There was rain in the forecast and trainer Terry Jordan appeared to have made a shrewd move when he entered Hollywood Hit "main track only" for last Saturday's six-furlong turf prep for the July 4 Highlander Stakes.

The rains did come, in quantity, in areas all around the racetrack but not at Woodbine

So the turf remained firm, and Hollywood Hit stayed in the barn.

"I'll just have to wait for the Bold Venture," said Jordan, referring to the $150,000 stakes at 6 1/2 furlongs here July 17.

Hollywood Hit has won the six-furlong Jacques Cartier and the Grade 3, seven-furlong Vigil in his two appearances here this season.

On June 3, in his first workout since the Vigil, Hollywood Hit was clocked five furlongs in 57.20 seconds, breezing.

Trinity Run joins Jordan's barn

Jordan expects to have a new shooter in the barn later this week. Trinity Run, recently based at Churchill Downs with Tom Amoss, has been purchased privately by Peter Redekop.

Trinity Run, a 3-year-old colt, was a $250,000 yearling but had been claimed for $40,000 from his next to last start at Churchill Downs.

In her only outing for Amoss and owner Maggi Moss, Trinity Run won a maiden race over seven furlongs.
