Improving Centralinteligence Targets Malibu

Encouraged by his impressive victory on Santa Anita’s new conventional dirt main track three months ago, Ron Ellis plans to run Centralinteligence in his first stakes race a week from today in the Grade I, $300,000 Malibu Stakes for 3-year-olds, opening day main event of Santa Anita’s winter/spring meet. “He ran well over the track and he’s an improving horse,” Ellis said of the chestnut gelding owned by a group headed by Amerman Racing Stables, LLC, Bongo Racing Stable, and Gary Finder.


“He’s a good-looking horse. He was a $90,000 (Keeneland sales) yearling. He’s been working at Hollywood and he’ll stay there till he’s finished training for the race and ship to Santa Anita to run.


A son of 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Smarty Jones, Centralinteligence broke his maiden at Hollywood last July, then took an allowance test at Santa Anita on Sept. 30 by 3 1/4 lengths. In his most recent race, on Nov. 27, he was second to Smash, another Malibu nominee, beaten only a half-length going 6 ½ furlongs.


Probable for the Malibu: Associate, Casper’s Touch, Centralinteligence, Hoorayforhollywood, Light Up the Score, Luckaruck, Racing Aptitude, Rothko, Smash, The Factor and Wine Police.


Wine Police worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Monday in 1:01.40 for Steve Asmussen, while Rothko went five furlongs Sunday in 59.80, also for Asmussen, who plans to run yet a third horse in the Malibu, Light Up the Score.
