ARCADIA, Calif. - Trainer Tom Proctor has returned to California after basing his stable in South Florida earlier this year.

Proctor, whose stable won four stakes in California in 2011, has a familiar name to California racegoers among the entries for Saturday’s $100,000 Las Cienegas Handicap for fillies and mares on the hillside turf course.

Broken Dreams, a 6-year-old mare owned by Glen Hill Farm, won the Grade 3 Sen. Ken Maddy Stakes over about 6 1/2 furlongs on the hillside turf course last September, and was later 13th against males in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs in November.

In her only start this year, Broken Dreams was sixth behind Inspired in the five-furlong Ladies Turf Sprint at Gulfstream Park on March 4.

Broken Dreams is part of an expected field of six in the Las Cienegas, which includes Mizdirection and Unzip Me, stakes winners at this meeting.

Proctor respects Mizdirection, who has won her last three starts in turf sprints, including two stakes at this meeting. Asked if Broken Dreams has a winning chance, Proctor said, “if Mizdirection stubs her toe. She could be hard to beat.”

Proctor will have horses in Kentucky this spring and summer. He said he will be assisted in California by Aimee Dollase, the daughter of trainer Wally Dollase and the sister of California-based trainer Craig Dollase.
