Front-running Ellafitz demonstrated her gritty determination when she turned back several challenges to capture Santa Anita's $200,000 Santa Maria Stakes (gr. II) Feb. 18.
There was no staying with Ellafitz in last month's Pasaena Handicap and trainer Bob Baffert's 5-year-old mare could get the same kind of trip in the $200,000 Santa Maria Stakes (gr. II) Feb. 18 at Santa Maria.
Miss Match ran down a weary Switch in the final couple of strides to register a 45-1 upset in the $300,000 Santa Margarita Invitational Stakes (gr. IT) at Santa Anita March 12.

A thrilling winner of the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) when last seen April 30 at Churchill Downs, Blind Luck will be heavily favored against four opponents in the $150,000 Hollywood Oaks (gr. II) June 6 at Hollywood Park.
An eye-catching winner of the Santa Paula Stakes (gr. III) in her last start, Tanda bids for her third consecutive victory May 9 in the $100,000 Railbird Stakes (gr. III) at Hollywood Park.
