Throat Problem Behind A Jealous Woman

Even though A Jealous Woman is one for one going the mile and one eighth distance of Sunday’s grassy Santa Ana Stakes, she has found her niche going a flat mile on the turf.

A 7-year-old California-bred mare by Muqtarib, A Jealous Woman has run 10 races at one mile on grass, her last five in a row, winning four at that distance overall, including the Megahertz Stakes on Jan. 19.

A throat problem hampered her chances last out in the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes on Feb. 18, in which she finished an uncharacteristic seventh by 15 ¼ lengths after attending the early pace.

“I feel good about the Santa Ana distance for her,” trainer Francis Meza said. “I think the longer she goes, the faster she goes. I like a mile and an eighth better than a mile.”

Added husband Eddie Meza, a chaplain with the American Race Track Chaplaincy: “She’s a 7-year-old mare now. When she runs her race she’s able to relax, set her own pace and take her time making the lead, so I think they’re going to let her pace herself and she’ll have a really nice kick at the end.

“According to the doctor, her throat is clear now, so she should be close early and still be closing at the end.”

Owned by the Three Cent Stable and Niles Dickey, A Jealous Woman has eight wins from 20 starts with earnings of $444,106.

The field for the Santa Ana: Lady of Shamrock, Mike Smith, 8-5; Long Face, Gary Stevens, 20-1; Quiet Oasis, Mario Gutierrez, 5-2; Smarty B, Tyler Baze, 12-1; A Jealous Woman, Brice Blanc, 9-2; and Tiz Flirtatious, Julien Leparoux, 9-5.
