Rousing Sermon Ready for Lewis

California-bred Rousing Sermon, beaten only a neck by Liaison despite rallying six wide in the Grade I CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park on Dec. 17, worked four furlongs Sunday in 47.40 for next Saturday’s Grade II Robert B. Lewis Stakes for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles.

 

"He went real nice, so we’re all ready to go,” Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said.

The Lewis, with a purse of $200,000, is a major steppingstone to the Grade I, $750,000 Santa Anita Derby at 1 1/8 miles on April 7.

 

Also expected for the Lewis are two Bob Baffert trainees, the aforementioned Liaison and Sky Kingdom, a son of Empire Maker who was fourth in the CashCall, and Norfolk Stakes winner Creative Cause, who is trained by Mike Harrington and will be ridden by Joel Rosario.

 

Joe Talamo, who was aboard Rousing Sermon in the CashCall, rides again in the Lewis.
