Von Hemel on stakes roll

Email

Round Lake can continue trainer Donnie Von Hemel's stakes run at Remington Park when she starts as one of the top choices in the $50,000 Cimarron, a 7 1/2-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies. Von Hemel has won the last three stakes at the meet and has compiled eight stakes wins over the last six weeks of racing at Remington.

Von Hemel won last year's Cimarron with Brownie Points, who will represent him at Churchill Downs on Saturday in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere.

Round Lake will be looking for her first stakes win in the Cimarron. She was second by a neck last out in the $50,000 E.L. Gaylord Memorial at 6 1/2 furlongs. The move back to two turns and turf should suit Round Lake, whose maiden win came under those conditions at Lone Star Park in July. Cliff Berry has the mount on Round Lake.

Stage Stop should go favored Saturday. The winner of the $100,000 La Senorita at a mile on turf at Retama Park on Sept. 2, she is moving back to turf for the Cimarron following a runner-up finish to Grade 1 winner Meadow Breeze in the $100,000 My Trusty Cat at Delta Downs. Luis Quinonez has the mount for trainer Cheryl Asmussen.

Other stakes winners in the field are Polynesian Kitty and Charlie Sioux.

* Red Rock Creek, who is 5 for 5 this meet, will start in the second race, an optional claimer. Trainer Scott Blasi has given the mount to Justin Shepherd.
