Before Fletcher and Carolyn Gray's homebred broke through to win her first stakes in the 2015 Silverbulletday, the plan was to make her a grass horse, but the eight-length score was enough to convince Jones to keep her on dirt.

Santa Anita Park Feb. 10 announced the stakes schedule for its upcoming spring meeting and the most notable change was a tip of the cap to one of the best mares to ever run at the Southern California track.

Coffeepot Stables' Farrell, who had a six-length victory in the Nov. 26 Golden Rod Stakes (G2) at Churchill Downs, kicks off her 3-year-old campaign in the $150,000 Silverbulletday Stakes over a mile and 70 yards at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.
