Beverly Hills Noms Work

Several nominees for the $100,000 Beverly Hills Handicap worked on the Hollywood Park turf Sunday. The Grade III test for fillies and mares will be run at 1 ¼ miles on grass June 26.

Pretty Katherine, an allowance winner on the lawn here in her last start, worked six furlongs in 1:16.20 under Tyler Baze for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, who also nominated Tuscan Evening.

Tuscan Evening, a 5-year-old mare who won the Grade I Gamely Stakes here in her last start, would rule as a prohibitive favorite if she started.

“We’re still on the fence with Tuscan Evening,” said Hollendorfer. “We’re also considering the Modesty Handicap at Arlington (July 17). We’re still pondering it.”

Trainer Ben Cecil, who won the 1998 Beverly Hills with Squeak, worked the trio of Restless Soul, Gripsholm Castle and Lady Francesca six furlongs.

“It could be any combination, none, one, two or all three,” said Cecil of probable starters. Victor Espinoza, who has taken a call on Restless Soul, worked the 6-year-old mare in company with Spring Style. Restless Soul was clocked in 1:14.80.

Espinoza also worked Lady Francesca in company with Gripsholm Castle, exercise rider David Meah up. Gripsholm Castle was timed in a bullet 1:13.80; Lady Francesca 1:14.20.

Trainer Paddy Gallagher listed General Consensus as probable and Princess Taylor as possible after the pair worked six furlongs each. Rafael Bejarano has the call on General Consensus, who was timed in 1:14.60. Princess Taylor worked in 1:15.40.

Cat by the Tale, winner of the San Gorgonio Handicap and third in the Gamely, worked six furlongs in 1:15.40 for trainer Neil Drysdale. Joel Rosario has the Beverly Hills call.

On Cushion Track, Leonard Powell worked Rosey de Megeve four furlongs in 47.80 and Catsalot five furlongs in 1:00.40. Powell said he would probably run one.

Princess Haya, another probable starter, will be ridden by Christian Santiago Reyes.
