Rmisvesta Works, Will Go in Starlet

(From track report)
Rmisvesta worked seven furlongs in 1:26.40 Sunday morning at Hollywood Park and received the green light for the Hollywood Starlet (gr. I) for 2-year-old fillies Saturday from trainer John Sadler.

Sadler was departing for a week-long trip to South America.

"She's been very consistent against top fillies and she won her first time going long," explained Sadler of the decision to run in the Starlet. "She was second to Composure and Watch You, and both times she broke from down inside."

Tyler Baze, who will be serving a suspension, has the call back in the designated race.

Sadler will be spending a week in Argentina and Chile looking at horses with bloodstock agent John Fulton. Larry Benavides, Sadler's assistant, will saddle Rmisvesta in the Starlet.

Rmisvesta is expected to face Composure (Mike Smith), Summer Wind Dancer (Alex Solis), Watching You (Kent Desormeaux) and possibly Tizalovelylady in the 1 1/16-mile race.

Tizalovelylady drilled six furlongs in 1:13.80 Sunday at Santa Anita for Jay Robbins.

Composure, winner of the Oak Leaf Stakes (gr. II) and runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), is scheduled for her final work for the Starlet Monday at Santa Anita for trainer Bob Baffert.

Trainer John Shirreffs said that Sea Jewel, fourth-place finisher in the Breeders' Cup, would be forced to miss the race because of a bruised foot.
