Tyler Baze cautions that his victory aboard 20-1 shot Renee’s Titan
over 1-5 favorite Beholder in the Santa Ynez Stakes on Jan. 21 wasn’t a
shock, at least in his eyes.
“It didn’t surprise me,” Baze said after working Renee’s Titan six
furlongs Saturday in a bullet 1:13.40. “The filly has a lot of talent,
and every time I work her, she always works awesome. I was really
looking forward to riding her on the dirt in the Santa Ynez.
“That race wasn’t a fluke, not the way she was training, and right
now she’s really training well . . . She couldn’t be doing any better.”
Renee’s Titan and Beholder are on course for a rematch in the Grade I
Las Virgenes Stakes at one mile on Santa Anita Handicap Day, Saturday,
