Headley Seeks Fourth Los Angeles Win

Bruce Headley not only rates a spot in Guinness’ Book of Records as a top trainer, he assuredly deserves one as the only trainer who does not have a cell phone. How does he do it?

“I’m up at 3 a.m. taking care of my horses,” Headley says. “I don’t need to be making any phone calls.”

Tomorrow, Headley seeks his fourth win in the Los Angeles Stakes when he sends out Cyclometer in the Grade III event for 3-year-olds and up at six furlongs. Headley previously won the race with Street Boss (2008), Son of a Pistol (1999) and champion Kona Gold (2002).

“Cyclometer is doing fabulous,” Headley said of the Cyclotron horse bred in California by Headley and Irwin and Andrew Molasky, who also own the 6-year-old chestnut. “He’s been working great and he’s feeling great.”

The field for the Los Angeles Stakes, race two on a nine-race holiday card: Wine Police, Victor Espinoza, 6-1; Cyclometer, Edwin Maldonado, 7-2; Super Ninety Nine, Martin Garcia, 3-1; Wild Dude, Mike Smith, 1-1; and Color of Courage, Joe Talamo, 9-2.

Bob Baffert said Sunday morning Super Ninety Nine would be scratched. Absent from the races since finishing third in the Santa Anita Derby on April 6, 2013, Super Ninety Nine worked six furlongs Sunday morning in 1:13.80.
