Wide Open BC Filly & Mare Sprint

The Grade I Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint returns to a dirt surface for the first time since its inaugural running won by Maryfield at Monmouth Park in 2007.


While even the thought of back-to-back Breeders' Cups held on Santa Anita's synthetic Pro-Ride may have had many considering tearing up their Daily Racing Forms, the last two renewals of the Female Sprint have proved quite formful.


Two years ago, Ventura made an electrifying move on the turn for home and blew by champion (and 9-5 favorite) Indian Blessing for an easy four-length tally as the 5-2 second-choice.
