Camryn Kate Wins Down the Dip

Santa Anita Park
With 4-5 favorite Blues and Silvers sailing clear on an uncontested lead, longshot Camryn Kate and Corey Nakatani sat far back early and rallied stoutly through the lane to take Friday’s $54,000 Allowance feature by a neck, covering 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course in 1:11.48.

Second as a maiden down the hill six starts back on March 31, the Neil French-trained Camryn Kate had been idle since running third at the same non winners twice-other-than condition going a mile at Del Mar on Aug. 25.

“She won, so it was exactly the run I wanted her to have,” said French.  “She was a little further back than I thought she would be but Corey got the job done and rode her well.  When you run eleven and change down the hill I know it’s fast, but…she ran big as a maiden down the hill, so we knew she liked the course.”

A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Kafwain, Camryn Kate is owned by her breeder, Cannon Thoroughbreds LLC.  Off at 9-1 in a field of nine, she paid $20.00, $8.20 and $3.80.

“Neil asked me to take her back, let her settle, then make a run,” said Nakatani.  “So I did exactly what he asked me to do and she ran a big race.  She was movin’ real good.”

With the winner’s share of $32,400, Camryn Kate increased her earnings to $132,630.  Her overall mark now stands at 9-3-1-1.

Blues and Silvers, ridden by Gary Stevens, cleared off early by three lengths and was a length and a half in front when made the dirt crossing at the top of the stretch through fractions of 21.70, 43.33 and 1:05.91.  She ended up third, 1 ¼ lengths behind Miss Lucky Sevens, who was mid pack early.

Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Miss Lucky Sevens, off at 9-1, made the lead inside the sixteenth pole, but was caught late.  She paid $8.60 and $4.80.

Blues and Silvers finished 3 ¼ lengths in front of Ricspretentiousgal and paid $2.40 to show.  Idle since running third at the level on Aug. 30 at Del Mar, she had six wins, a second and a third from nine starts this year.

“She was too sharp today,” said Stevens.

The $100,000 California Distaff, for fillies and mares at 6 ½ furlongs down the hill, will highlight a 10-race card at Santa Anita on Saturday.  First post time is 1 p.m.
