first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 7, 2015)–Trainer Neil Drysdale’s Gaga A made an auspicious U.S. debut at a mile and a half on grass Sunday at Santa Anita, as the 6-year-old Uruguayan-bred mare sat close to lethargic fractions and outsprinted favored Gas Total to take the $75,000 Possibly Perfect Handicap under Tyler Baze by 1 ¼ lengths. With favored Gas Total sauntering on the lead through splits of 25.91, 50.57, 1:16.50, 1:41.91 and 2:06.35, Gaga A angled off the rail a furlong out and stopped the clock at 2:29.78.Idle since winning a Group III stakes at 1 5/16 miles in France on Nov. 11, Gaga A was off at 6-1 in a field of six fillies and mares three and up and paid $15.80, $4.80 and $4.20.“They were walking!” said Drysdale. “A mile in 1:41 and four?…She quickened well which was nice to see. The plan is to take her to Arlington next for the Modesty (Grade III, 1 3/16 miles on July 11).In a racing rarity, owner/breeder Haras Phillipson owns the one-two finishers in the Possibly Perfect and has them with two different trainers (Richard Mandella has Brazilian-bred Gas Total).“Mr. Phillipson has a stud farm in Brazil and a stud farm in Uruguay, but these horses have all come to us from France,” said Drysdale.“Neil got her ready and she was just a dream to ride,” said Baze. “I didn’t really have to steady turning for home but I threaded the needle. She’s a push-button horse to ride. She galloped out well after the wire and she was full of energy. I gave her a nice pat crossing the wire, she threw her ears up and was just having a good time.”Gaga A, who improved her overall record to 29-5-3-5, picked up $46,080 for the win, increasing her career earnings to $273,031.Ridden by Flavien Prat, Gas Total, who came off a second place finish on the main track in the Grade I Vanity Stakes May 9, was the heavy 3-5 favorite and finished 1 ¾ lengths clear of Irish-bred Halljoy.

FAVORED TARA’S TANGO GETS HARD EARNED HALF LENGTH WIN IN GRADE II, $200,000 SANTA MARIA STAKES AS GARCIA & HOLLENDORFER TEAM FOR 1 1/16 MILES WIN IN 1:44.48

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2016)–A close fourth mid-way down the backstretch, favored Tara’s Tango split horses three off the rail coming to the quarter pole and went on to a hard earned half length victory in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Santa Maria Stakes at Santa Anita. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and ridden by Martin Garcia, Tara’s Tango outran Yahilwa late and got 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.48.Third, beaten a neck here in the Grade II, seven furlong Santa Monica Stakes Jan. 23, Tara’s Tango, a 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Unbridled’s Song, registered her first graded stakes win in her ninth career start.“I think this is the distance she wants to run, I think she wants two turns,” said Garcia. “She doesn’t have a lot of early speed. I think she prefers to go at her own pace and this distance lets her run at her own pace.”The 9-5 favorite in a field of eight older fillies and mares, Tara’s Tango paid $5.80, $3.20 and $2.60.“We thought she could route because she did run against the Eclipse Award winner (3-year-old Filly, Stellar Wind, who beat Tara’s Tango by a nose in Santa Anita’s Summertime Oaks on June 20),” said Hollendorfer. “I was a little distressed when she came away from the gate slower than we wanted her to, but Martin got her into a good position right away…I think one of the key things was that Martin let (Birdatthewire) go, so that he could make his own pace.”Owned and bred by Stonestreet Stables, LLC, Tara’s Tango improved her overall mark to 9-3-3-1. With the winner’s share of $120,000, she increased her earnings to $318,004.Yahilwa, who came off a third place finish in the Grade II, 1 1/16 miles La Canada Stakes on Jan. 16, pressed the pace under Joe Talamo and stayed gamely for the place, finishing three quarters of a length in front of Living The Life. Off at 7-2, Yahilwa paid $3.80 and $2.80.“She ran a helluva race, she really did,” said Talamo. “The plan was to let her break out of there and place herself, which she pretty much did. She ran huge, I mean the winner came to us and she fought back. She did everything but win.Irish-bred Living The Life had the lead into the Club House turn and ran a huge race under Gary Stevens, finishing 1 ¼ lengths in front of Kyriaki. Off at 9-2, Living The Life paid $3.20 to show.The disappointment in the race was Birdatthewire, who was the second choice with Mike Smith at 2-1 and finished a non-threatening fifth.Fractions on the race were 23.54, 46.97, 1:11.45 and 1:37.73.First post time for a nine-race card Sunday at Santa Anita is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more
