Six horses, two trainers


There is one certainty about the $25,000 Molly Brown Handicap at Arapahoe Park: the six-furlong race for fillies and mares will be won by one of two trainers, Jon Arnett or Kenneth Gleason.

Arnett and Gleason account for all six starters in the field, training three entrants apiece. The horses will all race as separate interests, and it appears Gleason might have the upper hand with Lady Legend, who has won her last four starts in a streak dating back to September.

Gleason has also entered Vannacide and Ladysgotthelooks, who finished a neck apart last out when Vannacide won the $35,000 Ingrid Knotts for Colorado-breds at Arapahoe on June 4. Vannacide can come from off the pace, and she could get a decent setup in the Molly Brown, with front-runners Not One Iota, Amaras, and Lady Legend all situated to her inside. Gleason has given the mount on Vannacide to Orlando Martinez.

Lady Legend won the $20,000 Manhatttan for Kansas-breds at The Woodlands during her streak, which dates back to September. She last raced on June 4, posting a three-quarter-length allowance win going 5 1/2 furlongs at Arapahoe. Adrian Ramos will ride from post 4.

Arnett, who leads the standings here, has named leading rider Travis Wales on Amaras. The defending champ in the Molly Brown, she was fourth last out in a $25,000 claiming sprint at Sunland Park.
