Royal Heroine Bullet for Spring Style

Spring Style showed her readiness for a return to the races in the $150,000 Grade II Royal Heroine Mile next Saturday by working a bullet five furlongs on turf in 1:00 here Sunday.


“This will be her first start since the Buena Vista (Handicap at Santa Anita, in which she finished sixth on February 15),” said trainer Ben Cecil. “She was out with niggling little things, but she’s doing well now. A mile is probably the bare minimum for her, but I’ve got to run her somewhere.”


Spring Style, an Irish-bred 4-year-old filly by Pivotal, has won three of 10 starts for Kristina Cecil, the trainer’s wife, and Zillah Reddam and earned $105,677. She won her only start on the Hollywood turf last November.


Other probable starters include Gotta Have Her (Tyler Baze) and U R All That I Am (Rafael Bejarano).


Cecil also watched Andina work six furlongs on turf for the American Oaks. “Last time she was too close to the pace,” said Cecil of the Irish-bred filly, who finished fourth in the Honymoon Handicap May 31 after stalking in second much of the way. “We will try to stay farther back. She’s got a nice turn of foot. We took that away from her last time. A mile and a quarter should suit her.”
