Sprinters Scheduled to Return on Short Rest for Cool Air
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (June 13, 2012) – Teresa and David Palmer’s Wild Bout Tiffany, who returned on 13 days rest to win the $75,000 U Can Do It Handicap at Calder Casino & Race Course last Saturday, and Silverton Hill, LLC’s Indulgence, who was put to that rival’s sword when fourth in the same race, are scheduled to engage in a rematch just seven days later as both were among the 11 fillies and mares entered for the $55,000 Cool Air Stakes, to be run over five furlongs of Calder turf on Saturday.
Trained by Bill Kaplan, Wild Bout Tiffany has prevailed in seven of 19 lifetime starts, and while her career-defining victory in the U Can Do It came over the dirt, the filly is a two-time winner on the turf, with both victories coming at the five-furlong distance.
The Marty Wolfson-trained Indulgence is best known for a third-place finish in last year’s Grade 1 Princess Rooney where just 1 ¼ lengths separated her from race winner Sassy Image, but the 5-year-old mare has proven equally adept on grass, with two victories from seven tries, including a sprint-win over the local lawn.
Luis Saez, aboard Indulgence for the first time when fourth in the U Can Do It, will return to the saddle on Saturday looking to improve upon that result. The daughter of Macho Uno will start from post five.
Indulgence is one of four horses entered in the Cool Air by Wolfson, who is also represented by the Thoroughbred Futures Racing pair of Nakano and Leopard Rock, the former a Calder allowance winner in her last start, and Chuck Miller Thoroughbreds, LLC’s Timezone, who hasn’t competed since October 2011.
Apprentice rider Hugo Sanchez retains the mount aboard Nakano, while Jozbin Santana is scheduled to team up with Leopard Rock. Jermaine Bridgmohan was named aboard Timezone at the time of entry.
Other notables in the Cool Air field include Mary Adkins and Robert Smith’s Freewest, a turf-sprint allowance winner at Calder in early May that has since returned to finish fifth against male rivals in the Champali, and Ups & Downs Racing’s Becausei’mworthit, the third-place finisher in the 2011 edition of the Cool Air.
Completing the field is J D Farms’ Many Crowns, Kathleen Amaya and Raffaele Centofanti’s More Than Speed, World Thoroughbred Racing, Inc. and Chad Stewart’s Brinca, and Bluestone Thoroughbreds, LLC’s Commence Firing.
The Cool Air will go as the 11th race on a 12-race Saturday program from Calder with an approximate post time of 5:26 p.m. First race post time is 12:55 p.m.
