Hollendorfer Holds Strong Hand in $50,000 Lost in the Fog

Category : News - Mon 16/02/2015 - 12:49 EST

The $50,000 Lost in the Fog Stakes is the featured race February 16 at Golden Gate Fields with seven horses set to contest the six furlong race named in honor of one of the greatest horses to race in Northern California who lost his bout with cancer in 2006.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer will saddle the unbeaten Exit Stage Left (5/2) who has rolled off three consecutive stakes wins to start his career.   The New Jersey-bred has won the Golden Nugget Stakes, Gold Rush Stakes and most recently, The California Derby.  Exit Stage Left will be ridden by Russell Baze and break from post four.  All three of his victories have been over Golden Gate’s Tapeta surface. 

Bolita Boyz has been facing better

Hollendorfer will also saddle Bolita Boyz (9/2), who has won four of eleven career starts.  The Lost in the Fog will represent class relief for Bolita Boyz who will look to snap a five race losing streak after racing against tougher stakes competition at Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita.  The four year-old son of Act of Duty has not won since May 31 when he took the Unbridled Stakes at Calder, and has not fared better than fourth in any of his last five races.  Ricardo Gonzalez will have the mount breaking from post five. 

Marino’s Wild Cat also gets class relief

Marino’s Wild Cat (7/2) will also try to get back into the win column after three straight losses.  The Clifford DeLima trainee has won five of twelve starts in his career for earnings of $175,410, most recently finishing fifth in the California Cup Sprint Stakes January 24 at Santa Anita.
