Trainer pursues 350th Los Al stakes win


Trainer Blane Schvaneveldt will attempt to reach another career milestone - his 350th stakes win at Los Alamitos - when he saddles two female runners in the Grade 3, $27,150 Miss Princess Handicap over 350 yards on Friday night.

Schvaneveldt sends out the Fountain Valley Handicap runner-up, A Diamond Legacy, and Bitterroot Futurity winner Seperate Lanes.

A Diamond Legacy won four consecutive allowance races before finishing second behind stablemate Victory Splash in the Fountain Valley on March 8. Seperate Lanes is riding a three-race winning streak capped by a 350-yard allowance race win in her Los Alamitos debut, her most recent start.

Governor's Cup Derby winner Blue Grass Bounce, owned by D. Wayne and Laura Lukas, will make her 2002 debut in the Miss Princess.

Blue Grass Bounce, trained by Laura Lukas, won the Grade 1 Governor's Cup Derby over PCQHRA Breeders Derby winner Make It Anywhere and Los Alamitos Derby winner Marmet. She was second, by a nose, in the Grade 1 Golden State Derby.

Jacobs Creek tops Futurity

Trainer Jack Brooks will send out fastest qualifier Jacobs Creek, owned by Everado Muzquiz, in the Grade 1, $345,500 Remington Park Futurity over 350 yards on Saturday night at Remington Park.

Jacobs Creek, a son of leading sire First Down Dash and stakes winner Champagne Lane, started his career in promising form with a 1 1/2-length win in his Remington Park Futurity trial. His 17.981-second time for the 350 yards was the fastest mark from the 10 trials held on April 5.

The second-fastest qualifier, Outdashing, making his first start, won his trial by 2 1/2 lengths in 18.101 seconds.

Doittoem Gambler back at Remington

Doittoem Gambler, winner of three Grade 3 stakes at Blue Ribbbon Downs, is after his first Grade 1 win and first Remington Park stakes win in an evenly matched $137,420 Remington Park Derby on Sunday.

Doittoem Gambler, trained by Hubert Blankenship for owner James Jerald Jones, came to Remington Park after narrowly winning the Blue Ribbon Derby on March 24. In his first Remington Park start, he won his Remington Park Derby trial by a length.

Fastest qualifier A Real Man won his trial by two lengths against qualifiers Clara McRae, Royal Baby Sister, and Mr Mallard. A Real Man raced the 400 yards in 20.161 seconds, topping all qualifiers from the four trials.

Mr Jess Perry offspring prominent

The final Louisiana-bred crop of sire Mr Jess Perry is making a statement in the finals to the $85,980 Louisiana Breeders Lassie Futurity and the $61,680 Louisiana Breeders Laddie Futurity at Delta Downs.

Mr Jess Perry is the sire of the top two qualifiers, Adios Miss Jess and Miss Ashante, to the Lassie Futurity. The stallion will be represented by four offspring, including fastest qualifier Dwaynes Perry, in the Laddie Futurity.

The Lassie will be held on Friday night and the Laddie on Saturday.

Mr Jess Perry left Louisiana in 1999 to stand at the 6666 Ranch in Guthrie, Texas.
