Miss Princess Has Formidable Field

Share via

The eight fillies and mares entered in tonight’s $27,150 Miss Princess Handicap certainly know where the wire is.

Between them, the ladies, ages 3 to 6, have won 37 races from 133 starts.

The best win percentage among the scheduled participants in the 350-yard race belongs to Seperate Lanes.

A 3-year-old daughter of Lanes Leinster bred in Utah, Seperate Lanes has won five of seven. After winning four races in Idaho and Wyoming, she made a successful debut at Los Alamitos on March 29. The 7-5 favorite in her first for trainer Blane Schvaneveldt, Seperate Lanes, who is owned by Ron Hurst, won by a half-length under Alex Bautista at tonight’s distance. A win by Seperate Lanes or A Diamond Legacy in the race will be Schvaneveldt’s 350th stakes victory at Los Alamitos.

Blue Grass Bounce is the richest of the Miss Princess entrants. Trained by Laura Lukas for herself and husband Wayne, the Pritzi Dash mare has banked almost $235,000 while winning five of 20. She will be ridden by Sam Thompson as she makes her first start since finishing eighth in the Los Alamitos Derby on Nov. 10.

The picks: 1. Lotta Lane. 2. Legal Thief. 3. Crashin Bac. 4. Virbahn. 5. War And Remembrance. 6. Kissing Cobra. 7. Heza New High. 8. Texas Classy. 9. Seperate Lanes. 10. Fine Wines.

Four! In the first, let’s use Lotta Lanes, Adrianna Signature and Chicks Wicked Six, single Legal Thief in the second, use Crashin Bac, Highly Rated and Little County Weeds in the third and Virbahn, Flashforward and Tiki Volcano in the fourth. Total cost: $27.

Shots in the dark: Watch Tower had a rough trip April 7 and could make amends in the sixth. Pure Cool needed 15 starts to break his maiden but did so impressively March 29 and could be a factor in tonight’s eighth.
