Calder: Hello Prince Headed to Birdonthewire

Nominations for renewals of the $100,000 Birdonthewire Stakes and $100,000 Cassidy Stakes for 2-year-olds at six furlongs, the latter for fillies, to be run next Sat., Oct. 1 at Calder Casino & Race Course have been released and it appears that Rey Wan Racing’s Hello Prince will be in the spotlight for the Birdonthewire.


With Hopeful Stakes (G1) runner-up Trinniberg nominated for the Birdonthewire but expected to ship to New York instead, Hello Prince will likely be the favorite and horse to beat after a sharp 4 ¼ lengths victory in an ‘a other than’ allowance last out on Sept. 10 for trainer Daniel Pita.


A son of Halo’s Image, Hello Prince chased division leader Fort Loudon in both the Dr. Fager and Affirmed divisions of the Florida Stallion Stakes this summer but seemed to hit his best stride in the 6 ½-furlong allowance score last out with J. Robert Harris III’s Mel Beach second and Brenda Tabraue’s Angelofdistinction third, both rivals also likely to line-up for the Birdonthewire.


A pair of impressive debut winners may clash as favorites in the Cassidy with Live Oak Plantation’s homebred filly Slew’s Exchange, a daughter of Exchange Rate, coming off a 2 ½ lengths first-out score on July 4 in her only start for trainer Eddie Plesa, Jr.; and Get Away Farm Racing Stable’s Live Every Day a 6 ½ lengths winner on Sept. 17 in the Lion Heart filly’s only appearance for trainer David Fawkes.


Trainer Bisnath Parboo has a contender for the Cassidy in his wife Sherry Parboo’s Exclusively Maria, a good third last out in the $75,000 Catcharisingstar Stakes sprinting five furlongs on turf on Aug. 27. Parboo claimed the daughter of Exclusive Quality for $25,000 here on June 9 and she broke her maiden for a $40,000 tag by six lengths in her next start with no takers.
