Broken Dreams Ready for Stakes Win

Asked if he thought Broken Dreams could win the $70,000-added Great Lady M Stakes Sunday, trainer Tom Proctor replied, “Is Marty Jones running?”

When informed that the Jones-trained Unzip Me was not entered in the six-furlong turf stake for fillies and mares, Proctor said with a sigh of relief, “Maybe she will, if she’s fast enough.”


Unzip Me, a multiple stakes winner with 11 wins in 19 starts, has twiced foiled Proctor in bids for an initial stakes victory for Broken Dreams. The Glen Hill Farm homebred mare finished second in both the Monrovia and Clockers Corner Handicaps on the hillside turf course at Santa Anita.


Broken Dreams, a Florida-bred 5-year-old mare, has recorded three firsts and five seconds in 11 starts.


Las Cienegas Handicap winner Separate Forest blew out three furlongs in 37.80 on the main track for the Great Lady M., in which she drew the outside post in a field of five under high weight of 122.


SIDNEY’S CANDY TO CARRY 123 IN AMERICAN HANDICAP


Trainer John Sadler confirmed Thursday that Sidney’s Candy would start in the $150,000 American Handicap Saturday under high weight of 123 pounds.


The 4-year-old colt drew post seven in a field of eight under Joel Rosario in the Grade II test at one mile on turf. The chestnut son of Candy Ride will try to duplicate the victory of his sire, who won the race under 120 in 2003 when it was run at 1 1/8 miles on grass.


The last horse to win the American under as heavy an impost was champion Tight Spot, who carried 123 in 1991.

 

PEDERSON SAVORS FRAN’S VALENTINE SCORE


Trainer Dean Pederson was making himself right at home in Barn 64 South in his first full-time meet here.


“Hopefully that was the way to get the ball rolling,” said Pederson of his first win at the meet with Logical Single, a 4-year-old filly who captured the $73,350 Fran’s Valentine Stakes for California-bred fillies and mares at one mile on turf Sunday.


Pederson, a Northern California transplant, said he had won one stake here previously. “It was also a Cal-bred stake, with a horse named Super Tuesday,” recalled Pederson. “She won a three-horse photo. (Alex) Solis rode her.”


“Committing here full time, it’s nice to get the first win of the meet,” added Pederson. “Hopefully, it won’t be the last.”


Logical Single is a Harris Farms homebred by Singletary. “Mr. (John) Harris is the main reason we made the move,” said Pederson. “He was a great client in Northern California and encouraged me to move south.”
