Uninhibited Song seeks second win

Email

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer had a deep collection of 2-year-old fillies last year, and they have gotten even better this year at 3.

Wildwood Flower won a stakes at Golden Gate last year and placed in a graded stakes at Santa Anita in January before owner John Gunther sent her east and to the barn of Kiaran McLaughlin. Bending Strings made her first six starts for Hollendorfer before Gunther sent her to McLaughlin in April. She won the Grade 2 Nassau County Breeders' Cup Handicap at Belmont in May. Heavenly Humor and Secret Corsage, who ran one-two in the recent San Jose Stakes, are still in Hollendorfer's stable at Bay Meadows. Crozet has won 2 of her last 3 starts, and is being readied for Saturday's $75,000-added Bay Meadows Oaks.

Now another of that same crop of Hollendorfer-trained fillies is ready to begin fulfilling her potential when she runs Thursday in a first-level allowance sprint.

Uninhibited Song, a $90,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, made only one start last year as a 2-year-old. She ran second to stakes-placed Platinum Princess in her debut last June before going to the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Uninhibited Song returned to racing on May 22, holding off stablemate Penny Ante to win her maiden by a nose as the favorite.

When asked to compare her to the other 2-year-old fillies he developed last year, Hollendorfer said, "I liked her a lot."

Hollendorfer has given Uninhibited Song a pair of half-mile works since her maiden score, and she should show improvement Thursday.

She will need to. Super G I won her debut in Florida last year and in three starts this year has faced better at Santa Anita. Super G I finished last in the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel there and then fourth and sixth in a pair of turf races.

She makes her first start in three months Thursday, and she has a good work pattern for her comeback, including a six-furlong bullet drill last Wednesday. She will be a factor late.

Muir Beach, second in four stakes races in Arizona, will sit behind Uninhibited Song and Miss Bleus Clues, and could be a stretch factor, too.

* Saturday's Bay Meadows Oaks has only five runners expected to go: Kurlicue, Dawn's Angel, Blowing Bartok, Crozet, and Secret Corsage. Alphabet Kisses and Broad Minded are possibles.
