Callaghan Starts Trio in Robert Frankel

Santa Anita remembers Bobby Frankel on Sunday with the second running of the stakes named in honor of the Hall of Fame trainer who died at 68 on Nov. 16, 2009.

Simon Callaghan has three horses scheduled to start in the 1 1/8-mile turf race formerly run as the San Gorgonio Handicap: Camelia Rose, Qaraaba and Imperialistic Diva.

“Camelia Rose has been a bit frustrating for us because she’s not won in America yet (in eight starts),” Callaghan said. “But she’s training well. We freshened her up after her last start (third on Oct. 19 at Santa Anita), then two starts ago she was fourth in that Grade I (Rodeo Drive on Sept. 29 at Santa Anita).

“She’s got ability and she’s now fresh and well, and it would be nice to get some graded stakes type for her.

“We also freshened Imperialistic Diva,” continued Callaghan. “She’ll be an outsider but she’s training well and runs her best races fresh. Hopefully, she can get a piece of it.”

As for Qaraaba: “She won her allowance race well and she’s training extremely well. She’s a filly we really like and she looks like she has a very good chance. She likes to be taken back, relax and finish.”

The field for the Frankel: Camelia Rose, Mario Gutierrez, 10-1; Halo Dolly, Joe Talamo, 5-2; Qaraaba, Julien Leparoux, 3-1; Hard to Resist, Corey Nakatani, 12-1; Imperialistic Diva, David Flores, 20-1; I Dazzle, Jose Valdivia Jr., 20-1; Vivo Per Lei, Mike Smith, 6-1; More Chocolate, Garrett Gomez, 8-1; and Tiz Flirtatious, Rafael Bejarano, 2-1.
