Twistaway goes for hot barn

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Trainer John Terranova hopes to carry his recent hot streak from Aqueduct's main track to the inner track when he sends out Twistaway in Sunday's $65,000 East View Stakes for New York-bred juvenile fillies.

Terranova went 5 for 16 during Aqueduct's main-track meet. His first runner on the inner track, Makin Me Famous, finished second in a maiden race on Thursday at odds of 15-1.

Twistaway, who finished second in the Fifth Avenue Division of the New York Stallion Stakes on Nov. 5, won't be quite that price Sunday, when she attempts to stretch out from six furlongs to 1 1/16 miles for the first time. Terranova believes Twistaway, a daughter of Wheelaway, will appreciate the added distance.

"She acts like a filly that needs more ground," he said.

Though she has only one win, Twistaway has run well in all three of her starts. She finished fourth in her debut at Saratoga when breaking from post 12 over a muddy surface. She didn't run again until Oct. 9 at Belmont, cruising to a 5 3/4-length victory under a hand ride. Then she finished a good second to Laurentide Ice in the Fifth Avenue.

"She came back okay," Terranova said, referring to Twistaway's debut. "She was going through a little bit of growing pains and we took it real easy on her. She did what she was supposed to do next time out. In the stakes, she got into a little bit of trouble, she had to check a couple of times and lost a little momentum around the turn."

Twistaway will get a rider switch to Fernando Jara, as Eibar Coa, who rode Twistaway in her last two starts, has opted to ride Laurentide Ice.

Trainer Dominic Galluscio wheels Visual Candy back just 16 days after she won a two-turn mile maiden race on Nov. 17.

"She ran a bigger race than it looks on paper," Galluscio said. "She had a little traffic into the first turn, then she steadied at the half-mile pole. She had to make two different moves, which is tough for a young filly to do."

Trainer Gary Contessa sends out the uncoupled entry of American Dream'a and My Kitty. American Dream'a won a one-turn mile maiden race on the main track, while My Kitty comes off a second to repeat winner Sagamoon in a first-level allowance race on the inner. Court and Spark completes the field.
