Iotapa Heads Field of Eight for Vanity

Iotapa wins 2014 Santa Maria

John Sadler sends out Iotapa and Magic Union for owners Peter and Kosta Hronis in Saturday’s Grade I Vanity Stakes for fillies and mares, age 3 and up, at a mile and an eighth.

Iotapa won the Grade I Santa Maria Stakes at Santa Anita in February, while Magic Union won first out for Sadler on Del Mar’s Polytrack last August but seeks her first stakes win in the Vanity.

“We bought her last summer,” Sadler said of Magic Union. “She ran a good second at Oaklawn (in the Grade II Azeri on March 15), and didn’t really care for Churchill (fourth after a troubled trip in the Grade I La Troienne on May 2), but she’s got some quality, so she’s going to be in there.

“Iotapa is a good fit in the race. She’s doing well and she’s a stakes winner here already, so both look pretty good.”

The field for the Vanity, which goes as the eighth race: Iotapa, Joe Talamo, 4-1; Magic Union, Javier Castellano, 8-1; Grace Hall, Joel Rosario, 5-2; Let Faith Arise, Corey Nakatani, 2-1; Scherzinger, Elvis Trujillo, 9-2; Yahilwa, Kent Desormeaux, 6-1; and Irish Presence, Fernando Perez, 30-1. Unusual Way was scratched.
