Teddy's Promise is a California Girl

Having ridden her in 12 of her 25 career starts, the last six in a row, Victor Espinoza knows the ways of Teddy’s Promise like the back of his hand.

The 5-year-old Salt Lake mare trained by Ron Ellis has a reputation of not favoring running on the inside, but Espinoza says she is maturing with age, which should be a plus when she goes in Saturday’s $100,000 L.A. Woman Stakes for fillies and mares, three year olds and up, at 6 ½ furlongs.

“She ran great at Hollywood (in the Grade II A Gleam Stakes, July 13, finishing second as the 13-10 favorite),”  Espinoza said. “I think she’s maturing and has more confidence now being inside horses than before.

“We’d prefer to be outside, and that’s where we are on Saturday. It’s a little bit better post for her. She likes this track, she likes to win and she likes to run fresh, so I’m optimistic.”

The field for the L.A. Woman Stakes: Ismene, Gary Stevens; Sister Kate, Martin Pedroza; Socialbug, Mike Smith; Conkate, Edwin Maldonado; Executiveprivilege, Rafael Bejarano; Teddy’s Promise, Espinoza; and Great Hot, Chantal Sutherland-Kruse.
