Los Angeles 'Cap Attracts Eight

Cost Of Freedom, a rapid winner in his first start of  2010 earlier in the month, will be trying to help trainer John Sadler make some history in the Los Angeles Handicap.


Sadler, who won the Grade III in 2009 with Red Arrow, is looking for his fifth victory in the race. He is currently tied with Buster Millerick for the most Los Angeles wins.


Owned by Gary and Cecil Barber, Cost Of Freedom, a 7-year-old Cee’s Tizzy gelding out of the Moscow Ballet mare, won by 4 ½ lengths in 1:08.36 at the Los Angeles Handicap distance on May 6.


It was the California’s bred initial outing since he finished third, a head behind winner Dancing In Silks, in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint last Nov. 7 at Santa Anita. Claimed for $50,000 by the Barbers on July 28, 2008 at Del Mar, Cost Of Freedom has won seven of 14 in his career while earning $606,105. Tyler Baze will ride the 122 pound top weight.


Stoneside and M One Rifle, who chased Cost Of Freedom nearly four weeks ago, return in the Los Angeles. The other scheduled participants are Bet On Victor, Hiya Silver, Jiggly, My Summer Slew and E Z’s Gentleman.


M One Rifle, who lost his best chance at the start in his 4-year-old debut when he hopped at the break, earned his biggest victory in the Malibu Stakes last Dec. 26 at Santa Anita.


Trained by Bruce Headley, who owns the gelding in a partnership, M One Rifle, a 4-year-old son of One Man Army and the Bertrando mare Leanessa, has won four of nine and $386,372. David Flores will ride M One Rifle for the first time as regular jockey Mike Smith has the call on Drosselmeyer in the Belmont Stakes.


Flores and Headley teamed to win the Los Angeles with Street Boss in 2008, the third win in the race for the trainer. Headley’s earlier victories came with Son Of A Pistol in 1999 and Kona Gold in 2002.


From the inside out, the field for the 58th Los Angeles Handicap: Hiya Silver, Joe Talamo rides, 114 pounds; My Summer Slew, Alonso Quinonez, 114; Cost Of Freedom, Tyler Baze, 122; Bet On Victor, Rafael Bejarano, 114; Stoneside, Martin Pedroza, 115; Jiggly, Victor Espinoza, 114; E Z’s Gentleman, Christian Santiago Reyes, 116 and M One Rifle, David Flores, 119.

Aggressive rider David Flores should fit M One Rifle like a glove.
