Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said that May Day Rose and A Z Warrior are both on target for the $250,000 Hollywood Starlet on December 11. The Grade I test for 2-year-old fillies will be run at 1 1/16 miles on Cushion Track.

May Day Rose comes off a wire-to-wire victory in the $100,000 Sharp Cat Stakes here at the Starlet distance on Sunday. A Z Warrior finished 12th and last in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Friday after capturing the Grade I Frizette Stakes at Belmont Park.

“A Z Warrior came out of it with a foot bruise,” said Baffert, optimistic that she will recover in time for the Starlet. Baffert won the Starlet with Excellent Meeting in 1998 and Habibti in 2001.

Trainer John Sadler said that Darley Debutante winner Tell a Kelly, seventh in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, is also being aimed for the Starlet.
