Wolfson has three ready for stakes


MIAMI - Trainer Marty Wolfson will have all angles covered, both quality- and quantity-wise, when it comes to Saturday's $50,000 Sara's Success Stakes on the grass at Calder.

Wolfson, who ran off a streak of five consecutive victories over a three-day span here last weekend, has entered three members of his turf-rich barn in the 7 1/2-furlong Sara's Success. The trio consists of Silver Charades and El Bank Robber, who own the highest and second-highest last-out Beyer Speed Figures in the lineup, and the 3-year-old Snow Cone.

Silver Charades and Snow Cone are homebreds owned by Charlotte Weber's Live Oak Plantation. Silver Charades is the more likely of the pair to start and will enter the Sara's Success off a one-length second-level allowance victory on the grass, for which she received a career-best Beyer Figure of 90.

Snow Cone, the lone 3-year-old in the lineup, won the restricted Georgia Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Debutante at 2 and most recently finished a troubled second in the Georgia Oaks. Her Beyer Figures, though, appear too slow to compete for the top prize in this field.

El Bank Robber returned from an eight-month layoff to finish second in the five-furlong Cool Air Stakes and figures to move forward with that race under her belt. She won the 2006 Georgia Oaks in a dead heat with Silversider.

Ms. Wonder Woman, a tiring third behind Silver Charades when she returned from a lengthy vacation of her own on April 29, may give the Wolfson horses their toughest competition. A 4-year-old daughter of Wild Wonder, she is trained by Bill White, a perennial Calder training champion. White is off to possibly his best start ever this spring, having greeted 9 of his first 18 starters at the meet in the winner's circle.

Ms. Wonder Woman had been idle since Nov. 6 when she launched her 2007 campaign last month, leading through midstretch before being passed late by both Silver Charades and Cross Channel. She has since returned to post a bullet five-furlong work and will obtain the services of leading rider Manuel Cruz for the first time in the Sara's Success.

Silversider finished a length behind El Bank Robber in the Cool Air and figures to be on or with the pace from the outset stretching back around two turns on Saturday. A 4-year-old, she finished third after making the pace in the 1 1/16-mile Hollywood Wildcat Breeders' Cup Handicap on April 28.

Nunez out of gate quickly

Jockey Eduardo Nunez, who will ride Wild Blonde for trainer Rodolfo Garcia in the Sara's Success, is off to a hot start this meet. A mainstay on the local circuit for nearly two decades, Nunez posted a riding double on Thursday when he guided longshot Little Paquetito to victory in the fifth race and B L's a Runner to a game triumph in the featured eighth race. The two-bagger gave Nunez 16 winners for the meet, just one shy of Elvis Trujillo for the second spot in the standings behind Cruz.
