Obviously, Centralintelligence Return Well

Obviously, who picked up his first Grade I victory in Saturday’s $300,000 Shoemaker Mile, and Centralinteligence, upset winner of the Grade I, $250,750 Triple Bend Handicap, were reported to be doing well Sunday morning.

Trainer Mike Mitchell said Obviously came back “in great shape” and reaffirmed the Irish bred’s ultimate goal of the Breeders’ Cup Mile, a race he finished third in last year.
Mitchell added that Camp Victory, who finished seventh in the Triple Bend, was no worse for wear while lamenting the lack of pace in the race.

Wilkinson and Lucayan, third and fifth in the Shoemaker, both came out of the race healthy, according to respective trainers Jeff Mullins and Neil Drysdale.

Trainer Peter Miller disclosed that Comma to the Top, second to Centralinteligence in the Triple Bend, cut himself in the race and came back with a two-inch gash on his right hind leg. The injury, while painful, is not considered serious.

Trainer Ron Ellis, first and fifth, respectively, in the Triple Bend with Centralintelligence and Rail Trip, relayed that both horses came out of the race fine.

Jimmy Creed, who ended up last as the 3-2 favorite after losing a shoe at the start, cooled out well and was in good shape Sunday morning, according to Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella.

John Shirreffs was pleased with Morning Line’s third-place finish in the Triple Bend, pointing out the 2012 Mervyn LeRoy Handicap winner likely needed the race. Morning Line came out of the race well, but future plans are undetermined.

TALAMO, BEJARANO IN EPIC STRUGGLE FOR TITLE

With nine days remaining in the Betfair Hollywood Park Spring/Summer meet, Joe Talamo and Rafael Bejarano are engaged in their own private match race for leading rider.

Talamo doubled Saturday with Obviously – a meet-high ninth stakes win – and Michailasheartlite.

Bejarano, the defending S/S champ, also won twice, taking the seventh with Sweet Lulu and the 10th with Brown Boss, so Talamo holds a 44-43 advantage entering Sunday.

Edwin Maldonado, the winner of the 2012 Autumn meet, is third with 36 victories.

In the battle for top trainer, John Sadler leads with 24 victories, followed by Mike Puype with 19. Hall of Famers Bob Baffert and Jerry Hollendorfer are tied with 16. Doug O’Neill and Peter Miller are deadlocked at 15.
