Reneesgotzip Back on Dirt in La Brea

Reneesgotzip worked hard from the No. 1 post position to win the Dec. 1 Skillful Joy Stakes by a neck under Garrett Gomez at Betfair Hollywood Park. The race originally was scheduled at six furlongs on turf but moved to Cushion Track due to inclement weather.

The 3-year-old daughter of City Zip owned by the Lanni Family Trust faces another daunting task on opening day, Wednesday, at Santa Anita when she takes on 4-5 morning line favorite My Miss Aurelia in the Grade I La Brea Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at seven furlongs.

“Reneesgotzip is doing great,” said trainer Peter Miller, coming off a highly successful 2012 in which he captured his first training title, at Del Mar. “She didn’t like the track at Hollywood that day. It was real deep and tiring, but she won in spite of it.”

Miller knows that 2011 Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic runner-up My Miss Aurelia is the one to beat. “She’s a very good filly,” Miller said. “It should be a helluva race.”

The La Brea field: Mamma Kimbo, Mike Smith, 6-1; Nechez Dawn, Edwin Maldonado, 8-1; Reneesgotzip, Garrett Gomez, 4-1; Creditcardroulette, Joel Rosario, 20-1; My Miss Aurelia, Corey Nakatani, 4-5; Candrea, Martin Garcia, 10-1; and Book Review, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1.
