Unbeaten Del Mar Futurity (gr. II) winner Declan's Moon breezed six furlongs in 1:15 Friday at Hollywood Park for his next start in the $100,000 Hollywood Prevue Stakes (gr. III) on Nov. 20.
Hollywood Park clocker Russell Hudak caught the 2-year-old gelding in :36 2/5 for the final three-eighths, including a final eighth in :12 1/5.
Declan's Moon, trained by Ron Ellis for Mace and Samantha Siegel's Jay Em Ess Stable, has not raced since the seven-furlong Del Mar race on Sept. 8 in which he nipped Roman Ruler in stakes-record time. He is undefeated in two starts.
The Prevue at seven furlongs serves as a prep for the $250,000 Hollywood Futurity (gr. I) on Dec. 18, expected to attract Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Wilko.
