Beholder Works Strong 5/8ths for Las Virgenes

Nov. 02, 2012 - Arcadia, California, U.S - Beholder (KY) ridden by Garrett Gomez and trained by Richard Mandella, wins the Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (Grade I) at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.

Eclipse Award winner Beholder worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Sunday in 59.60 under regular rider Garrett Gomez as the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner prepares for next Saturday’s Grade I Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile.

“Beautiful” is how Richard Mandella termed the work. Beholder was upset by 20-1 shot Renee’s Titan in the 6 ½ furlong Santa Ynez Stakes on Jan. 21, losing by three-quarters of a length in her 3-year-old debut.

With Rafael Bejarano in the saddle, Fiftyshadesofhay also worked Sunday for the Las Virgenes, going five furlongs in company with Brannaman in 59.40 for Bob Baffert. Brannaman was clocked in a minute flat.

“She’s Kentucky Oaks material,” Baffert said of Fiftyshadesofhay, a daughter of Pulpit who won the Grade II Santa Ysabel on a wet/fast track by nearly six lengths under Bejarano, who has ridden her in each of her six starts.

Probable for the Las Virgenes: Beholder, Gomez; Fiftyshadesofhay, Bejarano; Renee’s Titan, Tyler Baze; and Speedinthruthecity, Joe Talamo.
