Chasing Yesterday just won the Anoakia Stakes at Santa Anita. The half sister to American Pharoah was very determined running down the leader and getting that win. She may not be big, but she has heart. :D
Runner-up It'sjustanillusion is a granddaughter of grade II winner Silent Eskimo.

I learned via a Bloodhorse comment that Bucchero is a female-line descendant of Fifinella, who won the 1916 Epsom Derby and Oaks. She is one of six fillies to do so and the last one.

I'd noticed a full brother to Mohaymen and half to New Year's Day working at Los Alamitos; name, Kingly. He's now at Santa Anita and the track workout reports list his trainer as. . .


Baffert, of course. Sigh.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

That was a nice run by her. She was pretty far back but made a strong charge up the rail to finish a closing 2nd to Velvet Queen, a nicely-bred filly by Animal Kingdom out of a Tapit mare.

For those who are interested, Velvet Queen is out of a half-sister to grade I winner Lion Tamer.

I was a huge fan of Vodka. Really hoped she'd become as great a producer as she was a racehorse, so it's nice to see such a promising filly.

So Alive -- (Street Sense x Mythical Bride) a half to Vino Rosso won on debut at Keeneland R5 after navigating what seemed an impossible trip, in the mud, finally eating up the frontrunner in about three jumps once he got clear.
