Victor's Cry returns to defend his title in the $300,000 Shoemaker Mile (gr. IT) July 2 at Hollywood Park. While he's no lock to go favored, he's going to get more respect than he did in springing last year's 21-1 shock.
British-bred Battle of Hastings scorched his competition in Santa Anita's $100,000 La Puente Stakes on April 11 when he rallied for a 1 1/2-length victory over Smokey Lonesome.
Grade II victor Teton Forest found his first winner when his son Smokey Lonesome won June 19 at Hollywood Park in his second start. The 2-year-old gelding rallied to capture the $48,000 maiden event in near track record time over the Cushion Track surface.
