Trainer Bob Baffert has named Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith on Ventana for Sunday's Grade 3 Hollywood Prevue Stakes for 2-year-olds going 7 furlongs. Smith won the 2003 Prevue on Lion Heart. Baffert has won a record four runnings of the stakes, including last year with Massive Drama.
Ventana is by Toccet, winner of the 2002 CashCall Futurity. The colt was a $410,000 purchase at the Barretts March Sale for co-owners Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman.
