Scarlet Strike Set for Senorita

Scarlet Strike, winner of the Grade III Providencia Stakes April 6, tops the field for Saturday’s $100,000 Senorita Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. The Grade III is run at one mile on the Betfair Hollywood Park turf.

Trained by red-hot Jerry Hollendorfer, Scarlet Strike was third in the Grade I Hollywood Starlet during the 2012 Autumn meet and bounced back from her Providencia victory with four solid drills. Leading rider Rafael Bejarano will be aboard.

Jubilant Girl, who is trained by John Sadler, is expected to be Scarlet Strike’s main opponent. The daughter of Henrythenavigator has won three of four and most recently captured the Runway Stakes April 13 at Santa Anita.

The Saturday program will also include the $70,000-added Came Home Stakes for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs. Confirmed starters include Broadway Empire, a 16-length winner in his Turf Paradise debut and the returning Scherer Magic, victorious in the Grade III Hollywood Juvenile Championship during the 2012 Spring/Summer meet.

Trainer Robertino Diodoro, who returns from a suspension Tuesday, said he wasn’t surprised at the margin of Broadway Empire’s maiden victory. “This was one of the few times when I expected a horse to win like that,” revealed Diodoro. “He won even more impressively than I thought he would. Before he ran, he had a few issues at the gate and he’s a big horse anyway, so we gelded him. After that, he settled down.” Victor Espinoza will ride the son of Empire Maker

Sadler is enthusiastic about Scherer Magic off the bench. “He ran on the Breeders’ Cup undercard and came back with a small chip in his right knee,” advised Sadler. “He’s been training really well on this track.”

Also set for the Came Home is Treasury Bill (trainer Ron Ellis, jockey Joe Talamo), runner-up in the Grade II San Vicente Stakes Feb. 17 at Santa Anita.
