Callaghan Really Likes Fashion Plate

Fashion Plate would appear to be going from the frying pan into the fire when she runs in next Saturday’s Grade I Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile, but that’s not necessarily so.

“She came out of the maiden race really well,” said trainer Simon Callaghan, referring to a 6 ½-length triumph going six furlongs at Santa Anita on Dec. 29. “She’s been training really well and I’m really happy with her work yesterday (five furlongs in 59.80). Gary Stevens breezed her and he was delighted.

“We’ve always liked this filly a lot. Obviously she looked good winning last time and I think the stretch-out in distance is going to help her.”

Probable for the Las Virgenes, a major steppingstone to the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks on April 5: Arethusa, Corey Nakatani; Artemis, Mike Smith; Fashion Plate, Stevens; Streaming, Martin Garcia; and Taste Like Candy, Rafael Bejarano.

Unbeaten Streaming, winner of the Grade I Hollywood Starlet, worked five furlongs for Bob Baffert Sunday in 59.80.
