A Tex Sutton flight is scheduled to deliver several Eastern horses Monday for Turf Festival races at Hollywood Park Friday through Sunday.

 

The flight will pick up horses in New York and Kentucky, including multiple stakes winner Never Retreat for the $250,000 Matriarch Friday and highly regarded Willcox Inn for the $250,000 Hollywood Derby Sunday. Both are Grade I.

 

Also scheduled on the flight are Imagining and Casino Host for the Hollywood Derby and More Than Love for the $100,000 Miesque Stakes for 2-year-old fillies Friday.

 

Never Retreat, winner of the Grade I First Lady Stakes at Keeneland in her last start for trainer Chris Block, will go to Barn 70 North with trainer Eoin Harty.

 

Willcox Inn, winner of the American Derby and Hawthorne Derby for trainer Mike Stidham, will go to Barn 54 South with trainer Mike Puype. Both horses are based in Kentucky.

 

New York-based Imagining, trained by Shug McGaughey, and Casino Host, conditioned by Chad Brown, will go to barns 70 South with Jerry Hollendorfer and 70 North with Humberto Ascanio, respectively.

 

More Than Love, trained in New York by John Terranova, will be in Barn 61 North with Bob Baffert.

 

Trainer Michael Matz is shipping Assateague west for the Miesque and could arrive either Monday or Tuesday to Barn 53 East with Gary Mandella.


Trainer Graham Motion will also ship Summer Soiree and Unbridled Humor Tuesday to join defending champion Gypsy’s Warning, who arrived Thursday, in the Mandella barn for the Matriarch.

 

Four European shippers who cleared quarantine Friday and went to the isolation barn in 50 South were on the track Sunday. Two will run in the Hollywood Derby: Western Aristocrat for trainer Jeremy Noseda and Slumber for trainer Charles Hills. Hills also will be represented by Island Paradise in the Miesque while Dermot Weld has shipped Blue White Fire for the $100,000 Generous Stakes for 2-year-olds Sunday.
