Andina, In The Slips Meet in Honeymoon

Trainer Jamie Lloyd nominated two fillies to the $150,000 Honeymoon Handicap Monday, and although neither will start, he still has two probable starters to cheer for in the Grade II test for 3-year-old fillies at 1 1/8 miles on turf.

Lloyd explained Thursday that his two nominees--Glass of Red and Riviera Chic--would seek easier spots but that he will still be happy if either Andina or In the Slips wins.

“I bought both Andina and In the Slips and hope that one of them wins,” said the former bloodstock agent who purchased the pair in England after they started racing in 2009. “Both have been unlucky and should be helped by a mile and an eighth.’’

Andina, an Irish-bred chestnut by Singspiel, was a closing second in both the Providencia and Senorita Stakes in her last two starts. Joe Talamo will ride her back for trainer Ben Cecil and owner Arnold Zetcher.

In the Slips was a closing second in the Miesque Stakes here in November in her United States debut. She came back to win the Blue Norther Stakes at Santa Anita and subsequently was a troubled fourth in the China Doll and third in the Providencia on the Arcadia grass. The Kentucky-bred daughter of More Than Ready will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano for owner Michael House.

Andina and In the Slips are expected to be joined in the Honeymoon by Senorita winner Cozi Rosie (Mike Smith), Providencia winner City to City (Joel Rosario), Ashland Stakes winner and Kentucky Oaks runner-up Evening Jewel (Victor Espinoza), Triple Cream (Tyler Baze) and Florida import Dreamed to Dream (Brice Blanc).
