Miss Ellany Clinches BHP Training Title for Sadler

Miss Ellany made it consecutive gate-to-wire wins over the Betfair Hollywood Park turf course, prevailing by 2 ¼ lengths in Friday’s $57,000 feature.

Conditioned by John Sadler, who has clinched his fourth training title at BHP, for Hronis Racing LLC, the 4-year-old Kodiac filly out of the Rainbow Quest mare Rainbowskia, Miss Ellany established a clear advantage exiting the first turn and wasn’t seriously menaced the rest of the way under jockey Edwin Maldonado.

An Irish bred who was defeated by a combined 59 lengths in her first three starts in the United States, Miss Ellany preceded Friday’s victory with a 1 ½-length score in a $55,722 allowance June 15.

A winner of four of 14, Miss Ellany has banked $84,285. She completed the mile in 1:34.89 and paid $3.60, $2.40 and $2.10 as the 4-5 favorite.

Freedom Reigns, who trailed for most of the eight furlongs, rallied strongly for second, finishing 5 ¼ lengths in front of High Jinks, a Brazilian-bred making her first start in the country for trainer A.C. Avila.

The 2-1 second choice, Freedom Reigns paid $2.80 and $2.20 while the show price on High Jinks was $3.

Koko Loca and Creditcardroulette completed the order of finish.

Miss Ellany’s victory was the 27th of the Spring/Summer meet for Sadler, leaving him six in front of Mike Puype, who only has five horses left to run the final two days of the season.

Sadler, who will turn 57 July 30, won his first S/S title in 2008 and also led the Autumn meet in 2007 and 2009.

The jockey’s race remains a three-pronged battle. Joe Talamo, who is seeking his first local title, has 50 victories, leaving him two up on defending S/S champion Rafael Bejarano and three ahead of Maldonado, who won the 2012 Autumn meet.
