Savorthetime continues her national tour


Graded-stakes winner Savorthetime will race at her seventh different track this season when she meets 10 other filly and mare rivals in the $40,000 Dean Kutz Stakes, the 6 1/2-furlong feature Saturday at Canterbury Park.

The Kutz, being run for the first time, is named after the former leading rider at Canterbury, who died of cancer at age 48 last September.

A winner of the Grade 3 First Lady at Gulfstream in January, Savorthetime hasn't raced in the same place twice this season, visiting Sunland, Oaklawn, Lone Star, Arlington, and Calder. In her most recent outing, Savorthetime chased Madcap Escapade in the Grade 2 Princess Rooney at Calder, finishing third. Anything close to that performance would be enough to prevail in the Kutz. Roman Chapa has the call on Savorthetime.

Steve Asmussen, who trains Savorthetime, also entered Mamboalot in the Kutz as part of an uncoupled entry. Owned by the Vinery Stables, Mamboalot has started only twice this season, finishing fifth in the Queens Handicap at Horseman's Park in her most recent appearance. Brian Peck has the call.

Trainer Wayne Catalano has entered Liz on Polk Street for Frank Calabrese. A winner of an optional claiming event at Hawthorne in April, Liz on Polk Street finished third in the Fit for a Queen Stakes at Arlington in May and proved no factor in a subsequent try on the grass. Catalano has retained the services of Seth Martinez in what seems a logical spot for Liz on Polk Street to win her first stakes.

Phone the Diva has been a terror on the local turf course, winning all three of her starts at Canterbury this season, but she hasn't raced on the main track in over a year. A 5-year-old mare, Phone the Diva might be overlooked in this spot. Derek Bell, her regular rider, will be aboard Saturday.

Trainer Percy Scherbenske pulled a mild upset in the Claiming Crown Glass Slipper when Ells Editor produced a sustained late run to win that 6 1/2-furlong race. The 4-year-old Ells Editor has improved steadily since being claimed last November and makes her first start since the Claiming Crown. Scott Stevens has the return call.
