The $100,000-added Inglewood Handicap (gr. IIIT) Saturday at Hollywood Park is expected to mark the North American bow of Argentine-bred star City West, second highweight at 119 pounds.
City West, a 4-year-old colt in the Patrick Biancone barn, won four of five starts last year in Argentina, three of the victories in Group I competition. Eddie Delahoussaye has the call.
The Inglewood, at 1 1/16 miles on turf, is also expected to attract White Heart, the 120-pound highweight. White Heart, winner of the grade I Charles Whittingham Memorial Handicap here last year, will be making his first start since September after being freshened by Drysdale. Gary Stevens rides.
Other probable starters include Falcon Flight, Brice Blanc, 116; Casino King, Victor Espinoza, 115; National Anthem, Alex Solis, 114; Sarafan, Laffit Pincay Jr., 113, and Fateful Dream, David Flores, 112.
