Janet seeks another graded stakes win in Sunday's San Gorgonio at Santa Anita.
Multiple graded-stakes winner Tout Charmant heads a field of nine fillies and mares going 1 1/8 miles on the turf in the $150,000 grade III San Gorgonio at Santa Anita Park Sunday. The 6-year-old Slewvescent mare, who finished second to Perfect Sting in the 2000 Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, will have to run well to keep her racing career going. If she shows signs of slowing down, she will likely keep a date with Storm Cat in the breeding shed.

Tout Charmant will have to beat an evenly matched field, including the Eduardo Inda trainee Tropical Lady. The Brazilian-bred was third most recently in the grade II Bayakoa Handicap at Hollywood Park Dec. 15. Multiple stakes winner Janet starts for trainer Darrell Vienna.

The field for the San Gorgonio Handicap, in post position order with jockeys and weights: a-Tout Charmant (Chris McCarron, 120), Vencera (Gray Stevens, 115), a-Old Money (Eddie Delahoussaye, 116), Dancingonice (Tyler Baze, 113), Built to Last (Alex Solis, 114), Tropical Lady (Corey Nakatani, 113), Alexine (Brice Blanc, 117), Impeachable (Jose Valdivia Jr., 112), Janet (David Flores, 119).
