Lady Railrider, the 120-pound highweight in the $80,000-added Cat’s Cradle Handicap Sunday, will be shipped south from Golden Gate Fields Thursday, trainer Steve Specht confirmed Wednesday.


“She should be there around 11 a.m.; she’s going to Ed Moger’s barn (72 East),” said Specht. Joe Talamo will ride the hard-hitting 6-year-old mare in the 7 ½-furlong race for California-bred fillies and mares.


Lady Railrider, a homebred owned by Mr. and Mrs. Larry Williams, has recorded nine firsts, 11 seconds, five thirds and four fourths in 32 starts and earned $587,230.


Other probable starters include Downhill Diva, Brice Blanc, 119; Excellent News, Rafael Bejarano, 119; California Nectar, Martin Pedroza, 118; Salty Sarah, Martin Garcia, 118; Going for a Spin, 116; Chokecherymary, Garrett Gomez, 114; and Tiz Flirtatious, 114.



Jockey Rafael Bejarano, who suffered a bruised foot in a gate mishap Sunday that forced him to miss the last three races, was back on horses Wednesday morning as he prepares for a busy week capped by a call aboard favored Weemissfrankie in the Grade I Hollywood Starlet Saturday.


Bejarano seeks his third victory in five years in the rich race. Shortly after shifting to the Southern California circuit near the end of 2007, Bejarano won in his first Starlet try aboard Country Star. He guided Blind Luck to a decisive score in 2009.


Corey Nakatani leads in Starlet wins with four. Bejarano has been aboard Weemissfrankie in all four of her starts--three firsts and a third--for trainer Peter Eurton.




Morning Line, a Grade 1 stakes-winning millionaire, has joined the John Shirreffs stable here. The 4-year-old colt won the Grade 1 Carter Handicap at Aqueduct in April. In 2010, he won the Grade II Pennsylvania Derby and finished second, beaten by a head, in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. He was trained in the East by Nick Zito in his previous 12 starts.
