Bella Bella Bella Makes Comeback for Bray

Team Valor's Bella Bella Bella, will make her first start since April Sunday in the $100,000-added Cat's Cradle Handicap for California-bred fillies and mares at 7 1/2 furlongs at Hollywood Park.

Six were entered Friday and Bella Bella Bella drew the outside post.

Bella Bella Bella scored her first stakes victory at Hollywood Park last December in the Golden Ballet Stakes at 6 1/2 furlongs,

"I'm schooling her in the gate ... she's an anxious filly," said new trainer Simon Bray on Thursday.

He said he has had the 3-year-old filly about two months. "She's doing well and should like the distance. She's a come-from-behind sprinter."

Bella Bella Bella, to be ridden by Mike Smith, gets a break at the weights with 117, five less than Super High, another 3-year-old, and four pounds less than 4-year-old Elaine's Angel.
