It T’was the day after Xmas and all thru the house all the four-legged creatures were stirring, well all the 3yo Filly sprinters anyway as this Dec. the 26th Santa Anita fires up the winter meet’s graded season with the $300,000, GI La Brea Stakes, for 3yo fillies only, at 7f’s over the Santa Anita main track!
The 2013 edition of this 7f GI shootout brings together “7”very talented 3yo ladies from all points on the compass too.
But the match up here will be between Sweet Lulu the GI Test winner, 2nd in the GI Cotilion Stakes and 2012’s all-world 2yo filly wonder horse Executiveprivilege , who has had all of 2 outings this season and no visits to the winner’s circle in either looking for her first GI win!
My Happy Face , noted 3yo filly on the NYRA and mid-atlantic circuits with graded places in the GI Cotillion Stakes, GI Test Stakes and GI CCOA Stakes all this past summer!
Madame Cactus , is a last out winner of the GII Ravens Run Stakes at Keeneland last fall where she circled 9 other horse for a just in time neck win and covered the 7f’s in a very nice 1:21.1!
