Revealed should like route


INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Revealed emphasized her ability in turf sprints with an electrifying late kick on the hillside course at Santa Anita last month. Seventh in the first quarter-mile, she made up four lengths in the final furlong to win the third race of her career.

On Thursday at Hollywood Park, will attempt to win the longest race of her career in a $58,000 allowance race at 1 1/16 miles on turf.

The race has drawn only five starters, but all are accomplished. Several could appear in stakes for fillies and mares in coming months.

Revealed has shown speed throughout her career, though not always racing on the front. In her last start on April 9, she came from well off the pace. The way she waited to make a run has left trainer John Shirreffs optimistic that she will be suited to a longer distance.

"She acts like she could stretch out," Shirreffs said. "She's settled down a lot more in her last race, and she's easier for us to train.

Still, Shirreffs expects Revealed to be near the front, since she has shown quickness in the past and none of her four rivals on Thursday is a dedicated front-runner.

"If she breaks good, she should be right there," Shirreffs said. "She'd be a tough horse to take a hold of. I don't think she'd respond too positively to that."

will be well-backed. Trained by Sandy Shulman, Carini has not been worse than third in four starts since arriving from England last winter. She has won twice, including a one-mile allowance race at Santa Anita on April 22 when she rallied from sixth.

Red Top and Charm the Giant were second and third in a separate allowance race at Santa Anita on April 22, finishing behind 2005 stakes winner Berbatim.

For , 4, the race was her first start of the year. Trained by Ron McAnally for his wife, Debbie, Charm the Giant won allowance races last June and August before being sidelined by injury.

Thursday's race is the longest of her career, but should not pose a problem since she has proven to have an effective late run.

Sweet Fourty is the lone 3-year-old filly in the field. She won the WinStar Oaks at Sunland Park on April 1, her first start of the year.
