Sadler Taking Time With Sister Moon

Patience is a virtue, the old credo goes, and John Sadler is adhering to it with the precocious 2-year-old filly Sister Moon, who will go favored in her second start, Saturday’s $65,000 Anoakia Stakes at six furlongs. After she won her maiden race by nearly 10 lengths at Del Mar going 5 ½ furlongs, there was talk of trying a route in her next race, but thoughts of that were eventually dismissed.


“She just wasn’t ready to stretch out, so we wanted to run her short again and we got a race here in our own backyard,” Sadler said. “That’s the plan.”


A daughter of Dixie Union owned and bred by Jerry and Ann Moss, Sister Moon was not favored when she won at Del Mar on Aug. 21, going off at 9-5. She looms a much shorter price in the Anoakia, where five horses were entered to face her.


The field for the Anoakia, which goes as race three on a 10-race program: Ismene, Patrick Valenzuela; Nicos Memory, Rafael Bejarano; Lasso from El Paso, Victor Espinoza; Sister Moon, Joel Rosario; Evelyn’s Dancer, Mario Gutierrez; and Lady Pecan, Martin Garcia.
