Cozi Rosie Earns Mabee Victory

February 21, 2012.Cozi Rosie riden by Mike Smith wins The Buena Vista Handicap at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, CA..

Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Moss’ consistent Cozi Rosie, piloted by hot-riding Garrett Gomez, took the shortest way home along the inside rail to score a hard-earned triumph in the featured $250,000 John C. Mabee Stakes for older fillies and mares Sunday.


Saving ground on the far turn and into the stretch, Cozi Rosie wore down the pacesetting Wasted Tears, 2010 Mabee winner, in the final sixteenth and went on to a half-length victory.


Malibu Pier, ridden by Brice Blanc, rallied gamely through the stretch to shade Wasted Tears for runner-up money by a head, with Harmonious, the 4-5 favorite under Joel Rosario, a closing fourth, another half-length back.


Cozi Rosie, equipped with blinkers for the first time in her career by trainer John Sadler and with Gomez aboard for the first time, ran the nine furlongs over the infield Jimmy Durante Turf Course in a rapid 1:47.69. The final three furlongs were clocked in :35 flat with a last furlong in a blazing 11 2/5 seconds.


Cozi Rosi, a four-year-old daughter of Pleasantly Perfect, went postward the 4-1 third choice and rewarded her backers in a Sunday crowd of 18,665 with $10.40, $5.20 and $3.60. First money of $150,000 after her fifth success in 13 starts increased the filly’s earnings to $477,280. Cozi Rosi also provided Gomez with his third winner of the afternoon.


Malibu Pier paid $5.40 and $3.60, while Wasted Tears returned $3.60 to show.


Mike Mitchell, who Friday surpassed Hall of Famer Ron McAnally as Del Mar’s winningest trainer of all time, expanded his margin over the still active McAnally to four winners, 440-436, with a triple Sunday, winning the first, fourth and tenth races.


With a carryover of $142,756 from Saturday and $1,148,729 wagered Sunday, the Pick Six pool totaled $1,291,485. There was a single ticket with all six winners and it was worth $756,415. Reportedly, the ticket, representing an investment of $2,688, was purchased on-track at Del Mar.
