Reneesgotzip Set for Las Virgenes

Corey Nakatani is on an ideal horse in the Pete Miller-conditioned Reneesgotzip. In two rides, the 41-year-old Covina native has two wins, leading virtually throughout each race and being further in front at the finish than he was at the head of the stretch.

 

He hopes to continue that winning trend when he rides the Kentucky-bred daughter of City Zip in the Grade I, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile next Saturday.

 

“We’ll see what happens,” Nakatani said. “She goes to the front and improves her position. There’s nothing wrong with that. Let’s put it this way: I don’t want to change places with anyone.”

 

Probable for the Las Virgenes: Charm the Maker, no rider; Killer Graces, Joe Talamo; Made to Love Her, Rafael Bejarano; Reneesgotzip, Nakatani; Willa B Awesome, Martin Pedroza; and Your Special Day, Mike Smith.

 

At Santa Anita Saturday, Sharp Cat winner Charm the Maker worked six furlongs on turf in 1:14.40 for Ron McAnally.

 

At Hollywood, Killer Graces, winner of the Grade I Hollywood Starlet, worked six furlongs for Jerry Hollendorfer in a bullet 1:12.20 with regular rider Joe Talamo aboard, while Santa Ysabel Stakes winner Willa B Awesome went five furlongs in 1:00.40 for trainer Walther Solis.

I've always loved City Zip babies and this one may be his brake out horse. She could be any kind.
