Sister Moon Ready to Roll in Anoakia

Confidence and good horses are a tough combination to beat. Right now, Joel Rosario is benefiting on both fronts.


The 26-year-old jockey won four straight races (the first, second, third and fifth; he had no mount in the fourth) at Santa Anita Saturday to take a 17-16 lead over Rafael Bejarano in the jockeys’ standings. Rosario finished second on his last four mounts in races six through nine.


Next Saturday, Rosario rides the favorite in the $65,000 Anoakia Stakes, romping maiden winner Sister Moon for John Sadler in the six furlong test for 2-year-old fillies.


Sister Moon worked six furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track Saturday in a bullet 1:11.60. The daughter of Dixie Union owned and bred by Jerry and Ann Moss won her maiden race on Aug. 21 by 9 ¼ lengths under Rosario, who was aboard for Saturday’s drill.


“She worked good and she was really impressive in her maiden win,” Rosario said. “That was on Polytrack and Saturday she runs on dirt, but she’s been working good. We’ll see how much better she gets when she runs.


“She has a lot of talent. She’s classy. When you ask her to go, she’ll do whatever you ask her to, and that’s most important. There’s no need to rush her into longer races right now. The race at Del Mar was her first one and we didn’t know what we had, but it turns out it was really impressive.


“Right now we’re just working with her and we’ll see what we’ve got.”


Despite his success on Saturday, it’s a sure thing Rosario won’t win a race at Santa Anita today. He rides at Woodbine, where among his mounts is Kara’s Orientation in the $1.5 million Canadian International.
