Comma To the Top, Reneesgotzip Work for Miller

Comma To the Top and Reneesgotzip, two top sprinters from the Peter Miller barn, worked Sunday in preparation for upcoming stakes events.

Winner of the Grade III Los Angeles Handicap May 27 at Betfair Hollywood Park in his last start, Comma to the Top was clocked in 1:01 2/5 for 5 furlongs. The 5-year-old son of Bwana Charlie has racked up 14 victories from 31 starts, with $1.2 million in earnings.

Miller is considering both the Grade I, $250,000 Triple Bend Handicap at seven furlongs over Cushion Track June 29 at Betfair Hollywood Park or the Grade II, $350,000 Smile Stakes at six furlongs July 6 at Calder. The Triple Bend and Smile are “Win and You’re In” races for the Breeders Cup. The winner of the Triple Bend gets an expenses paid berth to the Breeders’ Cup Mile, while the Smile winner is awarded free entry in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

According to Miller, Reneesgotzip is “three to four weeks away” from her first 2013 start. If everything goes well, Reneesgotzip will run at Calder July 6, the same day as the Smile Stakes. She worked five furlongs Sunday in 1:01 4/5. Reneesgotzip was a close third to Mizdirection in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint and two starts later missed by a neck in the Grade I La Brea Stakes. The 4-year-old City Zip filly has won five of 10 starts and is 3-for-3 on Cushion Track.

Miller also advised that On the Backstreets, who finished fourth as the even-money favorite in Saturday’s Cinderella Stakes, suffered a displaced soft palate (commonly known as a fleshy obstruction in the throat), that required a minor procedure. She’s only expected to miss a couple of days of training.
