Talamo Excited to Ride Sprague River

Joe Talamo is excited about a 3-year-old filly he rides in Saturday’s $200,000 California Cup Oaks.

Her name is Sprague River, who is unbeaten in two starts at Hollywood Park, most recently in a six furlong turf sprint Dec. 20, when the daughter of Tribal Rule won by a length-and-a-quarter despite a slow start.

Talamo thinks the grassy Oaks at one mile will be suitable for the bay filly trained by Peter Miller and owned by Gary Hartunian of Sherman Oaks, who races as Rockingham Ranch.

“I think a mile will be great,” said Talamo, who recently celebrated his 24th birthday. “I’ve been working her and she’s really been working well. Last time she came home in 23 flat and relaxed real well.”
