2014 Bob Hope Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Prime Engine - Jerry Hollendorfer trained colt will try to remain perfect in his career - he has two wins in two starts. Last time out the win came in impressive fashion by 5 1/2 lengths in the minor Gottstein Futurity at Emerald Downs September 28 after a maiden score at first asking two weeks earlier. Hollendorfer's Shared Belief kicked off his championship campaign with a win in this race last year - he hopes for more of the same with his entry this year. Mike Smith has been tabbed to ride from post 4.
Story to Tell - Dan Hendricks trained colt has five career starts already with two wins, a second and a third place finish. His only off-the-board finish came two back in his only graded stakes action - a sixth in the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes on this track in August. Before that were two wins and a second place finish including a second in the minor Santa Anita Juvenile Stakes in June and a win in the minor WL Proctor Memorial Stakes in July. He enters off an OK third in the minor Speakeasy Stakes at Santa Anita October 13. Joe Talamo gets the call aboard the 122 pound highweight and the most experienced entry in the field Saturday from post 2.
