Santa Monica Stakes – Grade II
7 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $200.000 Filly & Mare 4 Year Olds And Up.
1st Dashboard Rahy, trained by John Henry
This six year old is certainly back to her best making it two from two for 2018 with a smooth one length win. She continues her consistent form but is now back to high level and i suspect this may be her best season.
2nd You Are My Sunshine, trained by Stone Creek Farm
Led at the furlong pole but was gunned down in the end. Another decent sprint and she looks to have trained on nicely.
3rd Dreaming Of Lys, trained by Smokey Stover
Kept on for third but never produced enough toe to get to the first two. A decent run but she still doesnt seem to have found her ultimate trip.
4th Mandy Mo, trained by Angelos Stable
Stalked the lead but was disappointing under the whip and could only manage fourth. This was a race run slower than her last two starts so the final sprint may have left her a bit flat footed.
