Tanda, Church Camp Aim for A Gleam

Tanda worked five furlongs in 1:00.20 Sunday for the $200,000 A Gleam Handicap for fillies and mares Saturday.

 

“She worked great; we’re all set,” said trainer Dan Hendricks of the 4-year-old filly for the Grade II at seven furlongs on Cushion Track. The A Gleam is a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint Nov. 4 at Churchill Downs.

 

Hendricks hopes that Tanda will duplicate the form of her last stakes win in the seven-furlong Railbird last year. Victor Espinoza, who won the race for the fourth time in eight years in 2010 aboard Sweet August Moon, will ride the filly for the first time.

 

Trainer Brian Koriner, who won his first A Gleam last year with Sweet August Moon, will try again with Church Camp, who worked five furlongs in 1:01.80. Riding arrangements are still pending for the Santa Lucia Stakes winner.

 

Other probable starters include Milady Handicap winner Ultra Blend (David Flores), Texas invader Shotgun Gulch (Mike Smith), Bayakoa Handicap winner Washington Bridge (Joe Talamo) and at least two of the Bob Baffert-trained quintet of American Lady, American Story, Excellent News, Fund Raiser and Irish Gypsy.

 

On Saturday, Ultra Blend worked five furlongs in 1:01.60 for trainer Art Sherman, while Washington Bridge drilled the same distance in 1:00.80 for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

 

Shotgun Gulch, winner of the Grade I Madison Stakes at Keeneland in April, was vanned from Lone Star Park last week by owner-breeder C.R. Trout to trainer Bruce Jackson at Santa Anita.
