A rematch of last fall's Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint battle at Santa Anita between the victorious Ventura and champion filly Indian Blessing looms in the $300,000 Santa Monica Handicap (gr. I) Jan. 31. But after entries were taken Jan. 28, trainer Bob Baffert said he was unsure if Indian Blessing would run.
Stalking Bettarun Fast swung four wide in the stretch to grab the lead under Aaron Gryder and went on to a three-quarters of a length win over Mystery Gal in the $100,000 Railbird (gr. III) for 3-year-old fillies at Hollywood Park Saturday.
Bettarun Fast will attempt to win her second straight graded stakes in Hollywood Park's co-feature Saturday, the $100,000 Railbird (gr. III) for 3-year-old fillies at seven furlongs.
