There won't be as much history for EVITA ARGENTINA (Candy Ride [Arg]) to buck
on Friday when she heads a cast of nine fillies and mares in the $200,000 Rancho Bernardo H. (G3) at Del Mar over 6 1/2 furlongs. Earlier this season, the John
Sadler pupil became the first filly to beat males in the San Vicente S. (G2) at
Santa Anita in 62 years. She later added the A Gleam H. (G2) at Hollywood Park,
becoming the first three-year-old in 63 years to win that seven-furlong dash.
