Santa Anita: Up In Time Wins Ramser

British-bred Up In Time proved her 11-1 upset in Del Mar’s Grade II San Clemente Handicap was no fluke Sunday when Martin Garcia drove her to a 1 ¼ -length victory over Celestial Kitten in Santa Anita’s Grade III, $100,000 Harold C. Ramser, Sr. Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on turf.

Sent off this time at odds of 5-1 in a field of 11, Up In Time rallied from just off the pace to gain the lead in midstretch and steadily draw clear while covering the distance in 1:34.25. Celestial Kitten, with Patrick Valenzuela, edged Bauble Queen by a neck for the place after having yielded a brief midstretch lead to the winner.

Comebacking Sarah’s Secret, the 19-10 favorite who had won her first four starts before being derailed in the San Clemente, could never mount much of a threat while finishing fifth.

Trained by Simon Callaghan for Anthony Ramsden and Three Chimneys Farm, Up In Time had tried to parlay her upset in the one mile San Clemente on July 24 into a 10-1 victory in the Del Mar Oaks on Aug. 20, but she failed to muster a rally in Grade I company while checking in seventh.

Callaghan had the chestnut filly well spotted on Sunday. “She had a good trip,” he said, “and she was traveling so easily through the race. She was a little handier on the pace than I expected she’d be, but she stayed on well and it was a good performance. She’s a really nice filly, and she’s only going to improve, so I’m very happy with her.”

“The race set up perfect,” said Garcia. “She’s a good filly, and she took me to where I wanted to be. I wanted to get the jump on the other horses, and that’s what happened. When I asked her, she just took off.”

Up In Time returned mutuels of $12.40, $6 and $4.20. Celestial Kitten paid $7 and $3.80. The show price on 9-2 second choice Bauble Queen, ridden by Joe Talamo, was $4.

Up In Time began her career in England last year while winning 1 of 3 starts before being sent to the United States where she has captured 3 of 7 outings. With the Ramser’s winning purse of $60,000, her career earnings became $198,576.
