Clement's Voodoo Dancer Expected for Sunday's Palomar Handicap

(From track report)
Voodoo Dancer was scheduled to arrive Wednesday afternoon for her date Sunday in the $150,000 Palomar Handicap (gr. IIT) for fillies and mares 3 years old and up going 1 1/16 mile on the Jimmy Durante Turf Course.

It will be Voodoo Dancer's second trip to Del Mar. The Christophe Clement-trained daughter of Kingmambo finished fourth in last year's Del Mar Oaks (gr. I).

The 4-year-old filly will be part of a field of at least seven for the race.

Committed along with Voodoo Dancer, who will be ridden by Kent Desormeaux, are Blue Moon, with Brice Blanc aboard; Eurolink Raindance, Patrick Valenzuela; I'm the Business, no rider named; Janet, David Flores; Old Money, Mike Smith and Palace Royale, Octavio Vergara.

Reine de Romance, who worked 5 furlongs on the turf Wednesday morning in 1:02, is a "possible" for the field.
