Scherer Magic Back to Work in Came Home

Betfair Hollywood Park logo.

Scherer Magic, who won the Grade III Hollywood Juvenile Championship in 2012, will make his first start as a 3-year-old in Saturday's $70,000 Came Home Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Trained by John Sadler for owners Cecil and Gary Barber, the Doneraile Court gelding out of the Touch Gold mare She’s a Nasty One has been away since finishing ninth of 10 in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Preview last Nov. 3 at Santa Anita.

An Iowa bred who has won two of six and earned $148,400, Scherer Magic is 2-for-2 over Cushion Track. Prior to this 2 ½ length win in the Juvenile last July 14, the dark bay had broken into the game one month earlier with a 7 ¼ length victory against $50,000 claimers. He was claimed out of that win by his current connections from owner Joseph Robson and trainer Craig Dollase.

Treasury Bill shortens up in his return to California for owners Gary and Mary West and trainer Ron Ellis.

A son of Lemon Drop Kid and the Menifee mare Wow Me Free, Treasury Bill finished eighth of 11 in the Grade II Rebel Stakes March 16 at Oaklawn Park. A winner once in four starts, the Kentucky bred has earned $71,000.

Prior to his off-the-board finish in Arkansas, Treasury Bill had finished second to Shakin It Up in the Grade II San Vicente – at the Came Home distance – Feb. 17 at Santa Anita.
Let Em Shine comes off consecutive easy wins for owner William Peeples and trainer Adam Kitchingman. The Songandaprayer colt out of the Johannesburg mare Justaspell defeated maidens by 7 ½ lengths Jan. 19 at Santa Anita before defeating four rivals by 4 ¼ lengths in an optional claimer March 10.

In his only start as a 2-year-old, Let Em Shine finished third after setting the pace against maidens last Dec. 15 at Betfair Hollywood Park. The Kentucky bred has earned $73,800.

Belvin, who was last seen trailing in the San Vicente, will make his second local start for owner-breeder Don Dizney and Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.

A son of Empire Maker and the Storm Bird mare Midway Squall, Belvin has won once in three starts and earned $42,850. He finished second behind Distinctiv Passion in his career debut over Cushion Track last Nov. 25.

Broadway Empire enters off a blowout maiden victory in his debut March 18 at Turf Paradise.

The gelded son of Empire Maker and the Belong to Me mare Broadway Hoofer won by 16 ½ lengths as the 1-2 favorite against six opponents. Robertino Diodoro trains Broadway Empire, who earned $6,684 for the victory, for owners Bob Butz, Randy Howg and Rick Running Rabbit.

From inside out, the field for the Came Home Stakes: Let Em Shine, Edwin Maldonado rides, 117 pounds; Belvin, Rafael Bejarano, 115; Treasury Bill, Joe Talamo, 115; Scherer Magic, Garrett Gomez, 121 and Broadway Empire, Victor Espinoza, 115.
