Miss Serendipity Returns to Turf

Miss Serendipity disappointed as the 2-1 favorite when she made her U.S. debut in the Paseana Stakes on Jan. 12.

The 6-year-old Argentine-bred mare finished fourth, beaten 2 1/4 lengths, in the Paseana Stakes at 1 1/16 miles on dirt Jan 12.

Ron McAnally expects improvement when she runs in next Monday’s Presidents’ Day feature, the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes for older fillies and mares at one mile on turf.

“She likes the grass,” the Hall of Fame trainer said. “Her last race in Argentina was very impressive,” referring to an easy four-length win going a mile and a quarter under 132 pounds in June 2013. “She’s won at a shorter distance, too.

“In the Paseana, when Gary (Stevens) rode her, it didn’t work out the way we thought. There were a couple of speeds in the race but they didn’t go and we wound up on the lead and she didn’t want to be.

“He was trying to rate her a little bit and in the stretch, he finally got out from behind horses and she started to come on again. She acts like a nice filly; we’re looking forward to the Buena Vista.”
