Orientatious does it easily at Hollywood


Sunday, May 22, 2011 |
Orientatious, a 3-year-old daughter of Orientate, looked ultra-impressive at Hollywood Park on May 22 as she handily won a six furlong maiden race in her second lifetime start.

The dark bay filly raced under a snug hold for the first half-mile then pulled away easily in the stretch without being asked. Rafael Bejarano was still geared down when she hit the wire 4 1/4-lengths clear, stopping the clock in 1:10.07.

Orientatious was bred in Kentucky by Liberation Farm and Brandywine Farm. She is out of the Woodman mare Energise, who is a daughter of De La Devil, winner of the Grade 3 Golden Rod S. at Churchill Downs. De La Devil, in turn, is a daughter of De La Rose, who beat the boys in the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby, one of her five graded stakes wins on the way to being named champion turf filly of 1981.

After finishing second in her debut last month, when she earned a stellar Beyer Speed Figure of 95, Orientatious is now 1-1-0 with $40,800 in earnings for a partnership that includes Tom Lenner, Skyline Stables, et al. The group, represented by Alex Solis, Jr., bought the filly for $90,000 at the OBS Open 2-year-old sale in Apr., 2010.
