Turbulent Descent Wins US Gr1 Hollywood Starlet
In the US, Gr2-winning & dual Gr1-placed 10-year-old freshman stallion Congrats (A.P.Indy-Praise, by Mr Prospector) added a juvenile Gr1 triumph when unbeaten daughter Turbulent Descent (Congrats-Roger's Sue, by Forestry) maintained her perfect record with a 1.25-lengths victory in the US$300,000 Gr1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes (8.5 furlongs on all-weather) for 2YO fillies at Hollywood Park in California. Favourite Turbulent Descent (ridden by David Flores for trainer Mike Puype) defeated Big Tiz (Tiznow-Squall City, by Carson City) & Tell A Kelly (Tapit-Evrobi, by Tabasco Cat). Turbulent Descent (a US$160,000 2YO at this year's Ocala Breeders April Sale) now has 3 wins (also including November's Listed Moccasin Stakes over 7 furlongs at Hollywood Park) from 3 starts for US$328,350 earnings.
