Streaking Mel's Game Headlines Tiznow

Betfair Hollywood Park logo.

Streaker Mel’s Game headlines the field for the $125,000 Tiznow Stakes, which is for older males at 7 ½ furlongs. It goes as the fifth race, making it the kickoff leg in the $150,000-guaranteed Pick Six.

 

Trained by Mitchell for owner-breeder Alexander, Mel’s Game is undefeated in three races with blinkers in 2013.

 

A 4-year-old Game Plan colt out of the Malek mare Melinda Rose, he has started five times and earned $121,070. Mel’s Game finished seventh and third in two Betfair Hollywood Park appearances as a 3-year-old.

 

John Scott, who is 2-for-2 over Cushion Track, shortens up after a nose win in the grassy Crystal Water Stakes Jan. 26 at Santa Anita.

 

Trained by Carla Gaines for owner-breeder Harris Farms, Inc., the 6-year-old Bertrando gelding out of the Deputy Minister mare Henlopen has won half of his 12 races and banked $460,304. Gaines and Harris won this race in 2006 with Lucky J.H.

 

Holladay Road will be making his first start of 2013 for owners Gary and Wendy Broad and trainer Julio Canani.

 

Inactive since finishing sixth in the California Cup Classic last Oct. 13, the 8-year-old Street Cry gelding will be seeking his eighth win in his 20th start. Out of the Great Commotion mare Blending Element, Holladay Road has earned $355,252. He has yet to compete over Cushion Track.

 

Late runner Kate’s Event will try for his second consecutive win for owner-breeder William Ziering and Hollendorfer. A come-from-behind winner over a wet fast track April 7 at Santa Anita, the son of Event of the Year and the Mane Minister mare Nordidid has won five of 15 and earned $245,940.

 

He Be Fire N Ice goes turf to synthetic for trainer John Sadler after an 8-1 upset in a miler April 5 at Santa Anita.

 

Owned by Cicero Farms, the 5-year-old gray son of Unusual Heat and the Deputy Commander mare Deputy Tombe has won two of eight while earning $90,000.

 

Like Holladay Road, Planet Sunshine will be making his first start since last fall for owner-breeder Thomas Shapiro and trainer Art Sherman.

 

A 5-year-old gelded son of Benchmark and the Lucky North mare Sunshine Dreamer, Planet Sunshine is 4-for-13 with a bankroll of $122,612.

 

Rock Me Baby, who has won three of four for West Point Thoroughbreds and trainer Craig Dollase, returns to the scene of his debut win. The 4-year-old Rock Hard Ten gelding out of the Tale of the Cat mare Barbara Orr, won a $50,000 maiden claimer versus state breds last Dec. 13 over Cushion Track. Rock Me Baby has earned $82,400.

 

Bailouttheminister ships from Golden Gate for owners Theresa and Edward DeNike and trainer Keith Nations after an allowance win March 15 at Golden Gate.
