Holladay Road Targets Cal Cup Classic

Holladay Road is not the type of horse that has to carry his track around with him. That’s why trainer Julio Canani is cautiously optimistic that the 7-year-old Street Cry gelding will perform admirably in Saturday’s $175,000 Lava Man California Cup Classic presented by City National Bank at 1 1/16 miles.

“He won the Crystal Water on this track, so he handles dirt,” Canani said. “I ran him a mile at Del Mar and he finished third (in the Brubaker) and (Joe) Talamo wanted to ride him back. I take that as a good sign.”

Owned by Gary and Wendy Broad, Holladay Road has a 7-1-4 record from 18 career starts, with earnings of $355,252. He was fourth in the Grade I Santa Anita Handicap in March, beaten five lengths by Ron the Greek.

Holladay Road was third by a neck in last year’s Cal Cup Classic, behind Norvsky and Lucky Primo in a blanket finish.

Probable for the Classic: Holladay Road, Joe Talamo; John Scott, Victor Espinoza; Lucky Primo, Tyler Baze; Norvsky, no rider; Rousing Sermon, Rafael Bejarano; and Woodmans Luck, Garrett Gomez. Entries for Cal Cup will be taken Wednesday.
