Undefeated in two starts, Amarish will try to become the third consecutive 2-year-old – joining J P’s Gusto in 2010 and Majestic City last year – to win both the Willard L. Proctor Memorial and Hollywood Juvenile Championship.

Trained by Jeff Bonde for owner Jerry Durant, Amarish, a Scat Daddy gelding out of the Awesome Again mare Issues, defeated maidens by 7 ¾ lengths in his debut May 26 before winning the Proctor by 4 ½ lengths June 16. He’s earned $91,200.

Sadler will saddle a pair – Carson’s Crown and Scherer Magic.

The former, a Harlan’s Holiday colt out of the Dare and Go mare Delicatessa, won by three-quarters of a length at first asking June 14. Carson’s Crown’s win was worth $30,000 to owners Ike and Dawn Thrash.

An Iowa bred, Scherer Magic will be making his first start for Sadler and owner Gary Barber after being claimed for $50,000 out of a 7 ¼ length debut victory June 14. The Doneraile Court gelding out of the Touch Gold mare She’s a Nasty One earned $17,400 for the win.

Winner of the 1996 Juvenile with Swiss Yodeler, Mike Harrington will be represented by Just Call Me Al, a horse he owns and bred with wife Patricia. A son of Redattore and the Allen’s Prospect mare Alacrity, Just Call Me Al was fifth in the Proctor after a debut win May 6. He’s earned $42,560.

Strong Wind has one win in three attempts for a partnership that includes the Roncelli Family Trust and Bill Tomasic and trainer Steve Knapp. The son of Tribal Rule and the Memo mare Chalk Face won by 6 ¼ lengths June 30. He has banked $39,360.

Confederate Recon is winless in three outings for GEM Racing Stable and trainer Eric Guillot. The son of 2007 Juvenile Championship winner Salute the Sarge – also trained by Guillot – and the Indian Charlie mare Building Bridges has earned $18,400. He was fifth behind Carson’s Crown in his last appearance.

Completing the cast is Dirty Swagg, a half-brother to Vanity Handicap winner and Hollywood Gold Cup also-ran Love Theway Youare. The son of Street Hero and the Tabasco Cat mare Diversa earned $1,000 for owner, breeder and trainer Myung Kwon Cho when finishing fifth in his debut versus maidens July 1.

From inside out, the field for the 73rd Hollywood Juvenile Championship: Dirty Swagg, Garrett Gomez rides, 115 pounds; Confederate Recon, Agapito Delgadillo, 115; Carson’s Crown, Martin Pedroza, 119; Just Call Me Al, Martin Garcia, 119; Scherer Magic, Joe Talamo, 117; Amarish, Edwin Maldonado, 121 and Strong Wind, Kevin Krigger, 119.
