Fanticola Set for American Beauty

Fanticola is as steady as they come, never finishing out of the money and winning thrice in eight career starts.

Despite that enviable record, Mike Mitchell says she’ll have to be at her best to win Saturday’s $75,000 American Beauty Stakes for older fillies and mares at one mile on turf.

“It’s a good race, with good fillies,” the trainer said. Fanticola, a 4-year-old Ontario-bred daughter of the Sunday Silence stallion Silent Name, was rolling late to finish third by a neck in the Wishing Well Stakes at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf Feb. 9.

“She came flying going 6 ½,” Mitchell said. “She’ll mile.” She already has. Fanticola broke her maiden going a mile on Del Mar’s turf course last Sept. 4, and was beaten less than a length finishing second in the Megahertz at a mile on turf Jan. 18.

The field for the American Beauty, race seven of nine: Moone’s My Name, Victor Espinoza, 5-1; One Time Only, Gary Stevens, 6-1; Unusual Hottie, Tyler Baze, 5-1; Golden Production, Edwin Maldonado, 9-2; Bee Brave, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1; Fanticola, Joe Talamo, 5-2; Oscar Party, Martin Garcia, 5-1; and Journey On, Corey Nakatani, 8-1.
