Hollywood: Miller Seeks Juvenile Sweep

Trainer Peter Miller is gunning for a sweep of 2-year-olds stakes at six furlongs next weekend. Woebegon looms as a leading threat in the $100,000 Landaluce for fillies on Saturday while Majestic City should rule as the favorite in the $100,000 Hollywood Juvenile Championship July 17.


Majestic City is unbeaten in two starts and comes off a facile score in the Willard Proctor Memorial Stakes at 5 ½ furlongs June 12. “According to the Beyer figures for his races, his are the fastest,” said Miller of the City Zip colt.


“He will work Monday,” said Miller of Majestic City, who will again be ridden by David Flores. Miller also plans to enter a maiden, Hurry Home Clover, with Garrett Gomez.


Woebegon, an impressive 3 ¼-length winner in her debut at five furlongs June 26, worked five furlongs in 1:00 Sunday with jockey Martin Pedroza.


“She did it very easily and came home in 24 flat,” said Miller, who won the Landaluce with Pinata under Pedroza in 2006.


Miller said he also plans to enter Stayclassysandiego, whom he claimed for $40,000 out of a 4 ½-furlong maiden win here June 10. Stayclassysandiego worked six furlongs in 1:13.80 and will be ridden by Victor Espinoza.


The Miller duo in the Landaluce will be challenged by Cinderella Stakes winner Killer Graces (Joe Talamo), Cinderella runner-up Chloe W (Rafael Bejarano) and maiden winner Mighty Caroline (Joel Rosario).


Competition in the Grade III Juvenile is expected to include maiden winners Night Tide (Martin Garcia) and Pend Oreille (Rafael Bejarano).




Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert moved closer to his first Hollywood Park Spring/Summer title after a “Dude-acta,” a one-two finish by First Dude and Game On Dude in the $500,000 Hollywood Gold Cup Saturday.


“Isn’t that amazing?” said Baffert Sunday of the Hollywood crown after opening a nine-race lead with his 34th win heading into the final week of the meet. “I’ve never run that many at this meet, but everything just seemed to work out this year.”


Baffert has won multiple titles at the four other major meets on the Southern California circuit: Santa Anita, Del Mar, Oak Tree and the Hollywood Autumn session.


Baffert said that both Dudes came out of the race in good shape and will be headed to Del Mar to see how they work on Polytrack. Marty Wygod, co-owner of Twirling Candy--who finished third in a three-way photo--said the 4-year-old colt would be readied for a possible rematch in the $1-million Pacific Classic August 28.
