Sadler Eyes Stakes Glory With Zazu, Cozi Rosie

Zazu top story.

Trainer John Sadler, who won the Hollywood Oaks last year with Switch and the Beverly Hills Handicap in 2008 and 2009 with Black Mamba, hopes for more good luck in the two stakes next weekend at Hollywood Park.


Sadler confirmed Sunday that he planned to enter Zazu in the $150,000 Grade II Hollywood Oaks at 1 1/16 miles on Cushion Track Saturday and Cozi Rosie in the $100,000 Grade III Beverly Hills for fillies and mares at 1 ¼ miles on turf the following day.


Joel Rosario has the call on both fillies owned by Jerry and Ann Moss.

Sadler hopes for an honest pace in both races for his come-from-behind entrants.


“Zazu came back good from Kentucky and worked six furlongs in 1:13 here yesterday,” said Sadler of the gray/roan filly who finished third in the Grade I Kentucky Oaks in her last start May 6.


“She went a big trip in the Oaks,” said Sadler of her race at Churchill Downs. “It was a big field, and she was running at the end, beaten two lengths.”


Zazu won the Grade I Las Virgenes Stakes and finished second in the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks to stamp herself as one of the nation’s leading 3-year-old fillies.


Cozi Rosie, a 4-year-old chestnut, worked a bullet six furlongs in 1:11.80 on the main track Sunday. She comes off a third-place finish in the Grade I Gamely Stakes here May 30.


“There was no pace in the Gamely--the one-two finishers were on the lead all the way--and she closed ground,” said Sadler, hoping the extra furlong of the Beverly Hills will be to her advantage.
