Wolfson-Castro double likely


MIAMI - Trainer Marty Wolfson and jockey Eddie Castro should have themselves a good day Saturday at Calder - all within a 30-minute span.

Wolfson and Castro will team up with prohibitive favorite Pampered Princess in the $75,000 Nancy's Glitter Handicap in the seventh race and then return with Covincing, who appears to have optional claiming company over a similar barrel in race 8.

is the undisputed queen of the local filly and mare handicap division. The 5-year-old Pampered Princess has won her only two starts at the meet, the Emergency Nurse and Charon overnight stakes, by a combined 11 lengths. She also finished second in the Grade 3 Sabin Handicap and third in the Grade 2 Rampart Handicap last winter at Gulfstream Park.

About the only obstacle in Pampered Princess's path Saturday may be her weight assignment of 126 pounds. She will be forced to concede eight to 14 pounds to her seven rivals in the 1 1/16-mile race. She carries three pounds more than in each of her two previous wins.

Pampered Princess has already defeated four of her seven foes one or more times, including Shady Woman and American Miss, who were both badly beaten in the Charon. Shady Woman did have an excuse that day after stumbling badly leaving the starting gate.

will return to Calder for the first time this season after spending the early part of the year racing on the grass for trainer Jeff Mullins in California. She, too, proved no match for Pampered Princess when they last met here a year ago in the Solo Haina Stakes.

Gentille Alouette, La Sami, Velvet Hope, and the 3-year-old Leona's Knight complete the Nancy's Glitter lineup.

has kept a steady diet of stakes company here this meet, winning the five-furlong Cool Air and finishing second in the Sara's Success before finishing fifth over yielding turf in the Ms Brookski Stakes earlier this month. She will race under a $40,000 claiming tag on Saturday in search of her fourth win in nine starts this season and second since being purchased privately by Wolfson for owner Joseph Sullivan at the tail end of the Gulfstream Park meeting.

Covincing's toughest competition should come from , a two-time allowance winner earlier in the meet, along with Indiansong, Right This Way, and Unbridled Skip - if she can draw in off the also-eligible list.
