Neil Drysdale will send out probable favorite Cat By The Tale with jockey Tyler Baze aboard in the $100,000 Wilshire Handicap (gr. III) May 1 at Hollywood Park. A field of 10 was entered in the test for fillies and mares at one mile on turf.
Cat by the Tale, a consistent 5-year-old mare, finished second behind Tuscan Evening in her last start in the Santa Ana Handicap at Santa Anita on March 21. She won the grade II San Gorgonio Handicap there in January. Drysdale will be looking for his second win in the Wilshire. He won with Sapphire Ring in 1999.
