Wildwood Flower Ships South for Moccasin Stakes

Edited from track reports
Wildwood Flower, an unbeaten half sister to stakes star Eye Of The Tiger, will be shipped south from Bay Meadows Wednesday to make her stakes debut in Hollywood Park's $100,000 Moccasin Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at seven furlongs on Sunday, according to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

"She's a filly, and he's a colt, so it's hard to compare them, but they have similar body types," said Hollendorfer of Wildwood Flower and her successful half-brother. Patrick Valenzuela has the Moccasin call.

Wildwood Flower, by Langfuhr out of the Phone Trick mare Dial a Trick, is a homebred owned by John Gunther. She broke her maiden at first asking at Bay Meadows September 27 and returned to win a six-furlong allowance race there October 30.

Trainer Leonard Duncan confirmed Steal My Kisses as a Moccasin starter after a satisfactory work in 1:27 and change Sunday. Julie Krone has the call.

Other possibles include Hot Weekend, Luckbealadytonight and Vino Tinto.
Luckbealadytonight worked four furlongs in :48.00 Tuesday for the Bob Baffert stable, while Vino Tinto drilled the same distance in :48 3/5 for trainer Nick Hines.
