The favored Hirschy ($5), making his second start in 10 days, sat back early before powering to his second straight victory in the $64,300 Cavonnier Juvenile at the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa, Calif., on Sunday.

Just as he had in his debut, Hirschy settled nicely behind the pacesetting Luck Lasts in the six-furlong stakes race for 2-year-olds. He was fifth in the field of six as Luck Lasts set splits of 23.01 seconds, 46.48, and 59.55 while being pressed by Tupelo Cush.

Hirschy began his move on the turn as Luck Lasts continued his strong effort up front. But Hirschy moved three wide and was in the clear as the field turned for home and seemed to have the leaders measured. He roared past Tupelo Cush and then Luck Lasts as Outlook tried to rally with him.

The two moved in tandem, but Outlook, who finished fourth in the Everett Nevin Stakes in his debut, was no match for Hirschy, who crossed the finish line three-quarters of a length in front in 1:12.19. The stakes-placed filly Time for Angie finished third.

The victory gave trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and jockey Russell Baze a repeat in the Cavonnier. Last year, they won with Zeewat, who also had made a winning debut at the fair.

Bred by co-owner Tom Bachman, Hirschy is a son of Arkansas Derby winner Papa Clem out of the Wild Again mare Flashy. John Carver, Peter Abruzzo, and Hollendorfer also own the colt.

The victory was worth $40,950 and raised Hirschy's bankroll to $60,656 with his 2-for-2 record.

Big good looking colt. Jerry should ice him until the SA winter meet and make a bid for the Derby.
