Sadler Runners Live in Holiday Weekend Stakes

It will be Sidney’s Candy and Cost of Freedom early and Cozi Rosie late if Memorial Day weekend stakes plans work out for trainer John Sadler at Hollywood Park.


Sadler hopes to send out front-runners Sidney’s Candy in the $150,000 Grade II American Handicap Saturday and Cost of Freedom in the $100,000 Grade III Los Angeles Handicap May 30 and closer Cozi Rosie in the $250,000 Grade I Gamely Stakes May 30.


“I’ll make a final decision on Sidney’s Candy after he works tomorrow, but I’m leaning toward running,” said Sadler Sunday of the 4-year-old colt who finished second in the Mervyn LeRoy Handicap here in his last start.

The American is at one mile on turf.


Cost of Freedom seeks to defend honors in the six-furlong Los Angeles and avenge a half-length defeat to M One Rifle in the five-furlong Cool Frenchy Stakes in their most recent starts here.


“Cost of Freedom should get a break in the weights this time,” said Sadler, pointing out that the 8-year-old gelding spotted M One Rifle six pounds in the Cool Frenchy.


“Cozi Rosie has run two bang-up races this year and will be up against her nemesis, Malibu Pier, again in the Gamely,” said Sadler of the first Grade I stake of the meet. The race is for fillies and mares at 1 1/8 miles on turf.


“They have split their first two meetings,” said Sadler, hoping to capture the rubber match after winning the Buena Vista Handicap over her arch-rival and finishing second in the Santa Barbara Handicap.
