Third as the 11-10 favorite in the Railbird Stakes May 21, Pedaltothemedal returns to grass for the first time in nearly one year in the Manhattan Beach.


Owned by Ackerman Stables LLC and trained by Art Sherman, Pedaltothemedal, a daughter of Medallist and the Meadowlake mare Something Brewing, has won two of four and earned $81,400. In her debut last July 10, Pedaltothemedal was beaten by a nose by Alienation going five furlongs on the Hollywood Park turf.


After beginning her career with two easy victories on the Santa Anita main track, Mildly Offensive will switch to turf. Owned by Warren Williamson and trained by Carla Gaines, the daughter of Sharp Humor and the Personal Flag mare It’s Personal earned $92,400 for the wins. Both victories were by 4 ¼  lengths, the most recent in the Santa Paula Stakes March 20.


 An 11 ½ length winner over maidens in her first on turf at the Manhattan Beach distance May 8, Mizdirection will seek a repeat for a partnership that includes radio and television personality Jim Rome’s Jungle Racing LLC, Tom Lenner and Alan Peterson and trainer Mike Puype. The gray daughter of Mizzen Mast and the Clever Trick mare Deceptive has earned $40,800. She was second in her only other start March 12 at Santa Anita.


Trainer Jim Cassidy, who won this race with Katdogawn in 2003, is scheduled to run a trio - Fifth Ave, Fifth Commandment and Wave of Applause.


Owned by a partnership that includes Cassidy and Kim Baker, Fifth Ave is shortening up after trailing in the Senorita Stakes May 7. The English bred daughter of Avonbridge and the Danehill Dancer mare Cozette won going 6 ½ furlongs on the hillside course at Santa Anita in her United States debut April 15. She has won three of 15, earning $57,731.


Fifth Commandment, an Irish bred by Holy Roman Emperor and the Singspiel mare Via Milano,  is owned by Cassidy and will be making her initial appearance in this country. She won four of 11 and earned $50,010 in England.


Owned by David Bienstock and Charles Winner, Wave of Applause is seeking her first win in the U.S. The daughter of Royal Applause and the Danehill mare Making Waves is 0-for-6 in California after winning once in two races in Europe. She has earned $62,753.


Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally, who won the inaugural Manhattan Beach with Gabriellina Giof in 2001, will send out Sugarinthemorning. Owned by breeder Stephen Weisman and Samantha Clement, the Candy Ride filly out of the In Excess mare Social Belle has won three of seven and earned $111,614.


From inside out, the field for the Manhattan Beach Stakes: Sugarinthemorning, Patrick Valenzuela rides, 119 pounds; Wave of Applause, David Flores, 115; Mizdirection, Garrett Gomez, 115; Mildly Offensive, Rafael Bejarano, 123; Fifth Ave, Victor Espinoza, 119; Fifth Commandment, Martin Garcia, 119 and Pedaltothemedal, Joe Talamo, 117.
