Spenditallbaby good to go on 9-day turnaround

Email

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Saturday is the day for the quick comeback at Hollywood Park.

Kip Deville starts in the $250,000 Californian Stakes five days after after finishing sixth as the favorite in Monday's Grade 1 Shoemaker Breeders' Cup Mile.

In the $75,000 Manhattan Beach Stakes for 3-year-old fillies, Spenditallbaby returns after winning an optional claimer over six furlongs on turf on May 24. The Manhattan Beach Stakes, run at six furlongs on turf, has a field of 10.

Trainer Barry Abrams is not concerned about the nine-day turnaround. He says Spenditallbaby wasn't not hard pressed to win the third race of her career on May 24.

"She needed a good workout," Abrams said. "She ran a good race, and I used the race as a work. How many times do you get a six-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies? She belongs. The last race had no effect on her."

Spenditallbaby will be seeking her first stakes win. She has placed in four stakes, including a third in the Grade 3 Miesque Stakes here last November. The Manhattan Beach Stakes marks her third start this year, the first of which was a fourth in the Golden Poppy Stakes at Golden Gate Fields on May 12.

The Manhattan Beach field is led by Sindy With an S, who finished third in the Grade 2 Railbird Stakes at seven furlongs on the synthetic main track on May 13. In that race, Sindy With an S set a torrid pace and finished two lengths behind the winner, Ashley's Kitten.

Trainer John Sadler has two entrants - Princess Iris and Seaside Affair. Princess Iris is making her first start for Sadler; she was previously trained by Jim Cassidy. A group stakes winner in Scotland last September, Princess Iris ran fifth in the La Habra Stakes at Santa Anita in her U.S. debut in March.

"It looks like she is better going short," Sadler said.

Seaside Affair finished fourth in the La Habra and was promoted to third when a rival was disqualified. She returned to finish fourth in the Senorita Stakes over a mile on turf on May 12, racing close to the pace to midstretch.

"To me, she's one of the ones to beat in there," Sadler said.

Also in the race are stakes winners Glorification and Swiss Diva, and the stakes-placed Desire to Excel and You Are the Answer.

Promising maidens in Saturday's ninth

Saturday's ninth race, a $46,000 maiden special weight race for 2-year-old fillies, may produce a starter or two for the $100,000 Landaluce Stakes over six furlongs on June 30.

The race drew a field of 11, but is limited to 10 starters. Eight of the 11 are first-time starters.

Tasha's Miracle, a $125,000 yearling purchase for Budget Stable, debuts for Sadler.

Sadler describes Tasha's Miracle as "promising."

"She definitely can run," Sadler said.

Ever So Pretty is a full sister to Stormello, the winner of the Grade 1 Hollywood Futurity last fall and a winner of 3 of 10 starts and $675,100.

"If she runs well, we may run in the Landaluce," trainer Bill Currin said of Ever So Pretty. "She'll have to deserve it."

Doug O'Neill has two first-time starters - Savannah Peach and Starstream, who is on the also-eligible list.

Savannah Peach starts from post 2.

"She's got a lot of natural speed, but she has enough class to break and find position, at least in the morning" O'Neill said.

Balance short price in Milady

Balance, a two-time graded stakes winner this year, will be a strong favorite in Sunday's $175,000 Milady Breeders' Cup Handicap. Balance, 4, has six rivals in the Grade 2 race over 1 1/16 miles - Ballado's Thunder, Cantabria, Hystericalady, Great Opinions, Memorette, and Nashoba's Key.

On Thursday, Balance worked a half-mile in 49 seconds, a workout that trainer David Hofmans described as "easy."

Stormello gears up for June stakes try

Stormello, who ran 19th in the Kentucky Derby in his last start, worked six furlongs in 1:12.60 on Thursday in preparation for a stakes appearance this month.

Stormello began his workout at the five-furlong pole and worked a furlong past the finish line, Currin said.

Currin said Stormello will start in the $250,000 Woody Stephens Breeders' Cup Stakes over seven furlongs at Belmont Park on June 9 or the $100,000 Affirmed Handicap over 1 1/16 miles here on June 17.

"I've got to make a decision pretty soon," Currin said.

He said he has some reluctance to shipping Stormello to New York since the colt has raced in Florida twice and Kentucky once this year.

Rosario moving here from Golden Gate

Jockey Joel Rosario, second in the jockey standings at Golden Gate Fields, will begin riding at Hollywood Park on June 13, according to jockey's agent Vince DeGregory.

Rosario, 22, a native of the Dominican Republic, will ride at Golden Gate Fields through the end of that meeting on June 10. He began riding in the United States last September.
