  • Unique Bella wins the Santa Maria Stakes by nine lengths

    Unique Bella Romps in Santa Maria

    For the first handful of strides in the $200,000 Santa Maria Stakes (G2), it appeared as if Don Alberto Stable's Unique Bella would get a challenge, but the big gray machine did away with that quickly.

  • Unique Bella and Mike Smith after her La Brea Stakes win at Santa Anita Park

    Unique Bella Kicks Off Season in Santa Maria

    Unique Bella's connections have consistently maintained that the gray daughter of Tapit's late season restriction to sprinting was circumstantial and they backed up that talk with an entry in the Santa Maria Stakes (G2) Feb. 10 at Santa Anita Park.

  • Mended gallops away to win the Claiming Crown Glass Slipper by 6 3/4 lengths Dec. 2 at Gulfstream Park

    Streaking Mended Steps Up for La Canada Run

    When John Martin put the claim in for Mended in January of 2017, his expectations weren't all that high. He certainly didn't have designs on a 10-race win streak and a trip to Santa Anita Park Jan. 13 for the La Canada Stakes (G2).

  • Majestic Heat scores in the Bayakoa Stakes at Los Alamitos

    Majestic Heat Rolls in Bayakoa

    A surface switch seems to be paying off for Majestic Heat, who is now two-for-two on dirt as she earned her first graded victory in the 1 1/16-mile $201,035 Bayakoa Handicap (G2) Dec. 3 at Los Alamitos Race Course.

  • Collected is one of four starters Bob Baffert is pointing to the Nov. 4 Breeders' Cup Classic at Del Mar

  • Stellar Wind (outside) and Vale Dori duel to the wire in the Beholder Mile

    Stellar Wind, Vale Dori Face Off Again in Hirsch

    Unlike the TVG San Diego Handicap (G2), when Hronis Racing, trainer John Sadler, and jockey Victor Espinoza upset Arrogate with Accelerate, the connections will occupy the pre-race spotlight in the Clement L. Hirsch (G1) Sunday at Del Mar.
