(from Hollywood Park report)
Unbeaten Just Too Too, a California-bred daughter of In Excess, will seek her first stakes win while attempting to extend her victory streak to five on Sunday in Hollywood Park's $100,000 Flawlessly Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on turf.

Gary Stevens will again be aboard the bay filly who has won a pair of allowance events on turf for trainer Jeff Mullins. She will face her toughest assignment to date in the third running of a race whose 2001 inaugural was taken by Voodoo Dancer, winner of last weekend's Beverly Hills Handicap.

With earnings of $133,860 for Richard Englander, Just Too Too drew post No. 4 in a field of ten and will get two pounds from both Fencelineneighbor and Valentine Dancer, co-high weights at 119 pounds.

Fencelineneighbor, who has shipped in from Florida to join trainer Mike Machowsky's barn, is the most experienced filly in the lineup with earnings of $136,229 from a 4-3-4 record in 12 starts. A stakes winner at Gulfstream Park on grass, the Florida-bred bay has captured two of four starts on turf. Corey Nakatani rides for Monarch Stables.

Irish-bred Rutters Renegade has faced the most formidable competition. A stakes winner in England, she was second in the Senorita Stakes (gr. III) in her U.S. debut on May 17. The Gary Mandella-trainee subsequently finished seventh in the Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II) on June 7, but was only 4 1/4 lengths behind victorious Quero Quero.

English-bred Katdogawn has won her only two starts over Hollywood Park's turf course including the Manhattan Beach Stakes on June 1. Trained by James Cassidy, she has posted an overall record of 3-1-2 in 10 starts for earnings of $114,185. Like Katdogawn, Valentine Dancer is a perfect 2-for-2 on the Hollywood Park lawn with wins in two allowance races for trainer Craig Lewis.
