Rosalind and Untapable, the top two contenders in Saturday’s $500,000-guaranteed Hollywood Starlet Stakes at 1 1-16 miles on Cushion Track, have completed their preparations for the Grade I.

Trained by Ken McPeek, who won last year’s Starlet with Pure Fun, Rosalind worked four furlongs in company with stablemate Rankhasprivileges Dec. 3 at Betfair Hollywood Park.  They worked heads up, each earning a clocking of 49 seconds.

“Rosalind went perfectly,” said Danny Ramsey, exercise rider and assistant to McPeek.  “Just what we wanted.”

The Broken Vow filly comes off a sharp third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Nov. 2, beaten by a half-length. Joel Rosario once again will be aboard.

Untapable worked the same distance a day earlier at Santa Anita in 49 2/5 seconds. The drill was termed “breezing’’ by the clockers.

Untapable was eased in the BC Juvenile Fillies after encountering severe trouble into the far turn.  In her previous start Sept. 7, she won the Grade II Pocahontas at Churchill Downs, defeating, among others, Rosalind.  The Tapit filly is trained by Steve Asmussen and will be ridden by Joe Talamo.

Unbridled’s Note, also trained by Asmussen, worked four furlongs Dec. 2 in 49 4/5.  The son of Unbridled’s Song, a close fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint Nov. 2, is entered in Sunday’s $100,000 Hollywood Turf Express.

Meanwhile, Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer’s dynamic duo of Tamarando and Shared Belief stretched their legs Dec. 1 on Cushion Track in preparation for the Grade I, $750,000-guaranteed CashCall Futurity Dec. 14. 

Tamarando, winner of the Grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes Nov. 10, worked a half-mile in  48 3/5.  Shared Belief, who won his first two starts by a combined 14 3-4 lengths, including an effortless victory in the Real Quiet Stakes Nov. 23.  The Candy Ride gelding went six furlongs in 1:12 3/5, the best of 20 works at the distance.
