Necessary Evil (Harlan's Holiday), the only filly in the short field of five, turned yesterday's GIII Hollywood Juvenile Championship into a laugher with a front-running three-length victory over Zip Quik (City Zip). The bay filly, sent off the 6-5 favorite, tugged jockey Joel Rosario to the lead and the pair clicked off fractions of :22.36 and :45.73. Always travelling easily, she waved good bye to the boys through five furlongs in :57.58 and sailed under the wire as much the best, completing the six furlongs in 1:09.98. "Boy is she fast," Rosario said. "At the top of the stretch she changed leads perfectly--in fact she does everything perfect."

 Necessary Evil used those same front-running tactics, zipping through fractions of :21.4 and :44.3 to win her five-furlong debut in :56.3 at Hollywood May 31. "She won nicely first time, but I think she did even better today," Joel Rosario added. Leandro Mora, assistant to trainer Doug O'Neill said, "That was phenomenal. I had second thoughts [about her beating colts] because the colt [stablemate and third-place finisher Classical Slew] was training awesome also. The last workout they worked together she was a little bit tough for him. That's when we started thinking she could be competitive."
