More Chocolate Tunes Up for Santa Margarita

More Chocolate worked six furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Sunday morning in a bullet 1:12, her final major drill for Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000 Santa Margarita Stakes for older fillies and mares at 1 1/8 miles.

A 4-year-old daughter of Malibu Moon trained by John Sadler for owner Michael Talla of Los Angeles, More Chocolate has not raced since winning the Grade II La Canada Stakes on Jan. 20, but that’s by design.

“She ran so big in the La Canada, and it’s a long year,” said Sadler assistant Larry Benavidez. “There’s no reason to be ahead early.”

As for the workout under Martin Garcia, who rides the bay filly in the Santa Margarita, Benavidez said: “She went beautiful. She galloped out strong. She was about eight (lengths) behind a workmate and did it the right way. She’s ready to go.”
