Executiveprivilege, seen winning the G1 Chandelier Stakes, also captured the G1 Del Mar Debutante

Mike Smith will be in the irons aboard Executiveprivilege when she makes her next start in the Hollywood Starlet Stakes (gr. I) Dec. 8. He will replace Rafael Bejarano, who had the regular rider of the filly.

Trainer Bob Baffert told the Daily Racing Form  that he will start 'spreading around' some of the leading mounts in his stable to other riders. For the past several months Baffert has teamed almost exclusively with Bejarano; the pair went winless, however, over Breeders' Cup weekend.

Baffert also said that Game On Dude will start in the Native Diver Stakes (gr. III) at Hollywood Park on Dec. 1, but was not sure who would ride the 5-year-old gelding.
