Shippers Settling in Well for Turf Festival

Several eastern invaders for the Turf Festival, which begins Friday and continues through Sunday, arrived safe and sound at Betfair Hollywood Park Tuesday.

Jose Hernandez, assistant to trainer Chad Brown, said that Dayatthespa and Pianist, both set to run in Sunday’s Grade I, $250,000 Matriarch, shipped “very well” and were “full of life” Wednesday morning.  Both 4-year-old fillies are housed with Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer and were scheduled to jog on Cushion Track later in the morning.

Hernandez said that Brown, former assistant trainer to the late Hall of Famer Bobby Frankel, is expected to be at Betfair Hollywood Park for the Matriarch.

The Christophe Clement trained duo of Summer Front, in for the Grade I, $250,000 Hollywood Derby, and Matriarch contender Discreet Marq went to the track early Wednesday under assistant trainer Christophe Lorieul.

“They went well and both of them are right on target,” said Lorieul.  The two are stabled in the barn of Hall of Famer Neil Drysdale.

Admiral Kitten, a fast-closing second in the Grade I Jamaica Handicap Oct. 5 at Belmont Park, arrived “in great shape,” according to Sean Ryan, assistant to trainer Michael Maker.  The Hollywood Derby hopeful is stabled with Mike Puype.

“He ate up everything last night and today,” said Ryan, “and he had good energy this morning.”

Adele Bellinger, traveling assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher, said Jack Milton, who will be ridden by Joel Rosario in the Derby, “jogged once around the track and went great.”

The son of War Front is residing in the Tom Proctor barn.
