She'll Heir looks intriguing in Cinderella

Email

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Two-year-old races in spring at Hollywood Park almost always include trainers Walther Solis and Mike Harrington. They dominate the program.

Solis (seven) and Harrington (three) have combined to win 10 of the 24 juvenile races at the meet, and both are well represented Wednesday in the $60,000 Cinderella Stakes for fillies. Solis starts Arta B Tappin and Seethe Girlgo; Harrington entered Swiss Wild Cat and Hi Ho Yodeler.

But who invited trainer Vladimir Cerin to the Cinderella party?

"It's unusual for me to have one 2-year-old," Cerin admitted.

Now he has two. She'll Heir and Gone Rebel, debut winners at Keeneland and Lone Star, respectively, make their first starts this week after being purchased by California owners David and Holly Wilson.

"They just happened to come up [for sale]," Cerin said. "We were thinking about rejuvenating the barn and Southern California racing."

Gone Rebel is likely to scratch and run Saturday in the Lost in the Fog Stakes at Golden Gate Fields.

"I don't want to run them against each other unless I have to," Cerin said.

She'll Heir, meanwhile, is ready to roll. Rafael Bejarano rides She'll Heir, a $44.40 debut winner April 9 at Keeneland over a good field. The runner-up, Aroyalsweet, won a two-furlong race at Woodbine her next out; third-place Ridem Up returned to win a Churchill Downs maiden race by six lengths.

She'll Heir has five works over the Hollywood surface, including a 47-second work May 27 that was the fastest of the morning. Asked how She'll Heir has adapted to her new surroundings, Cerin said, "Superbly."

The absence of the meet's fastest 2-year-old filly, Belleofthebridle, a Solis-trained filly who is being pointed to the $100,000 Landaluce on July 11, means Wednesday's stakes is ripe for a new shooter such as She'll Heir.

Even without Belleofthebridle, Solis might win the Cinderella. Jockey David Flores was given the choice to ride Arta B Tappin or Seethe Girlgo, and Solis was surprised Flores chose Seethe Girlogo, who earned a 48 Beyer in her maiden win. Solis said he believes the 5 1/2-furlong distance suits Arta B Tappin, whose jockey is Victor Espinoza.

The possible knockout is Rockin Heather, a debut winner at two furlongs April 7. Since then, trainer Rafael DeLeon said, "I worked her in company every single time, and she always finishes in front and gallops out huge."
