California Distaff Handicap
5 1/2 Furlongs Turf Stake Purse $100.000 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up Foaled In CA.
1st Retained Mb Stables Arroyo N Jr
Made it three in a row with a game half length win adding to her Matron win from last year. Mb Stables has been looking for a little opportunity like this and found the perfect race for her.
2nd Validation Team 7 Illusions Talamo J
Went onto the pace which was some feat considering this one hasnt run over a short sprint trip like this for years. But she set a decent pace down the hill only to be picked up inside the last half furlong.
3rd Right On Schedule Mb Stables Franco G
Less than a length back in third she was solid enough without really looking like the winner.
4th Growlness Our Athletes Prat F
Second last and beaten a length in true HRP style, she didnt quicken when asked but did beat home the odds on favorite.
