Bellafina had to do more work than last time, but showed she has some grit. Track may have been not to her liking. I want to see her win outside CA, but She’s staying home for the SA Oaks.

Cicero Farms' Marley's Freedom scored her eighth career win in 15 starts Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., tracking pacesetter Selcourt under Drayden Van Dyke, then taking command in deep stretch to win the Grade 2 Santa Monica Stakes geared down by 1 1/4 lengths. Mopotism finished third, with Escape Clause fourth and Paradise Woods last in the field of five after scratches of Dream Tree and Amuse.

I hope that there are more folks around here watching this fine filly. Late Night Pow Wow won her 9th in a row yesterday, and would be 12 for 12 if she had not just missed in a race last April. Really fun to watch.

I've been paying attention to LNPW. I think there's a Grade 1 win in her future.

A Grade 1 jock isn't likely to open the gates along the rail and let her have that kind of perfect trip in a Grade 1. Regardless, they're not often being won with 93 Beyers. She'll need to get faster.

The always hard-trying Holy Helena won The Very One for the 2nd time today. I am a huge fan of this mare, nice to see her win another graded stakes. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... e-very-one

Sad to hear about this heavy favorite's last place finish in the Fair Grounds Oaks...I've been very high on her.

Slow start, pretty wide, and probably could've won by more. What a classy girl.

Monomoy Girl Recovering from Mild Case of Colic
The Eclipse Award-winning filly Monomoy Girl is recovering from a mild case of colic that is expected to sideline her for about three weeks and will prevent her from making her eagerly awaited 4-year-old debut May 3 in the $500,000 La Troienne Stakes (G1) at Churchill Downs.

According to trainer Brad Cox, the Kentucky-bred daughter of Tapizar exited a van ride from Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots to Churchill last week with an upset stomach, then received several days of treatment at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington for dehydration.

Monomoy Girl is now recovering at WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky., and will be re-evaluated next week to determine when she will resume training. Cox hopes to have her back in his barn by May 1.

"It's unfortunate," Cox said. "The timing is not good, but it is what it is and we have to put the horse first."

Cos said the $700,000 Ogden Phipps Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park June 8 may be a "possibility" for Monomoy Girl's season debut because she has not lost much fitness in the last week, but added that he will not decide on her next start until "she puts in a good (five-furlong workout)."

Bellafina rolled to an easy win in the Santa Anita Oaks, with Flor De La Mar in second and Chasing Yesterday in third.

Slewgoodtobetrue finished last in the field of four.

It looked like somebody broke down badly in the stretch of the Madison, couldn't tell who :(

EDIT: It was Cathedral Reader.

Vasilika is something special, for sure.

And I also love Spiced Perfection. What gutty performance!

From Nicole Russo:
"AAEP on-call rep Dr. Bryce Howard says Cathedral Reader suffered a "pretty severe" front limb injury. She's on her way back to the backstretch to be evaluated. Will update as we know more."

Fingers crossed but it looked awful :(
