Plaer's Trump seeks first 2008 win


Plaer's Trump heads a solid field of eight Nebraska-bred fillies and mares in the $27,500 added Falls Amiss Handicap as Horsemen's Park in Omaha, Neb., rolls into the second card of its four-day meet Friday. The four-race evening program offers total purses of $82,500.

Plaer's Trump, trained by Herb Riecken, has won 6 of her 12 career starts and comes off a slightly troubled third in the Matchmaker Stakes at Lincoln on June 14. She is winless in her four starts this year but has been running well late in all of her starts and should be set to get her first win in this one-mile stakes. Armando Martinez will be aboard from post 6. Plaer's Trump won the Fantango Lady Stakes here last year as a 3-year-old.

My Hobby, trained by Larry Staroscik, notched her first win in more than three years in the Matchmaker and is a steady performer who should be racing near the lead. In the Matchmaker, My Hobby set a solid pace on a clear lead and held well under a hand ride by Larren Delorme. My Hobby is the top earner in this field at just under $86,000.

Scat's Princess and Dazzling Seville have put together solid campaigns and are serious threats in here.

Scat's Princess, trained by David Anderson, has 3 wins from her 6 starts this year but turned in a dud in the Matchmaker when sixth, beaten more than nine lengths. She was third in this race a year ago and has the ability to lay just off the pace and fire late.

Dazzling Seville has a pair of wins from seven starts for trainer Cheryl LeGrande this year and should be near the lead here. She was second in the Matchmaker after making a mild late rally.
