Corona Clique Has Big Hoof Prints to Fill


Corona Clique will try to follow in her father's footsteps tonight in the $400,000 Kindergarten Futurity.

Seven years after Corona Cartel won the Grade I race, Corona Clique is putting her unbeaten record on the line against nine other 2-year-olds in the 300-yard race.

She was the fastest qualifier for the Kindergarten, winning her race two weeks ago in 15.38 seconds.

Metallic Lion, Ocean Cartel, Shyann Cash and Beyond Brilliant also have won their first two starts. Ocean Cartel and Shyann Cash are trained by Donna McArthur, who won the Kindergarten last year.

Completing the field are Pencilmein, who will be attempting to give trainer Blane Schvaneveldt his record eighth Kindergarten win; Fast Goin Chick, How Good, Feet Of Flames and Hawkish.

The picks: 1. Der Rosen- thing. 2. Live Withit Willie. 3. Crystal N' Reign. 4. Mondesi. 5. Great Quest. 6. A Summer Time Gal. 7. Mags Royal Pride. 8. Corona Clique. 9. Coolmore. 10. Night Lines.

Four! Use Rope All Day and Der Rosenthing in the first, single Live Withit Willie in the second, Crystal N' Reign and Kan Fly in the third and all in the fourth.

Shots in the dark: Tokano makes her first start for trainer Dean Frey in the seventh. Keats stretches out again in the ninth.

Post time: 6:30 p.m.
