ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 12, 2018) — One Fast Broad, a versatile and consistent daughter of Decarchy owned and trained by Mick Ruis, works Tuesday under Flavien Prat who rides the three-year-old filly in next Monday’s Feb. 19 Presidents’ Day co-feature, the $200,000 California Cup Oaks at a mile on turf.
“In her last two $100,000 turf races against open company she was second,” Ruis said, referring to the Juvenile Fillies Turf at Del Mar on Sept. 4, 2017, and the Blue Norther Stakes at Santa Anita on Dec. 31. Each race was at a mile.
“She lost by a half-length in the Blue Norther and came flying,” Ruis pointed out, as she came from 10th in a field of 11, went four wide and just missed under 124 pounds.
“She should be pretty tough going against Cal-breds.”
In six career starts, One Fast Broad has won three with two seconds and a fourth for total earnings of $249,160.
The Presidents’ Day co-feature is the $200,000 California Cup Derby, which is expected to lure California Chrome’s full brother, promising maiden Faversham trained by Art Sherman.
Santa Anita offers another of its popular Dollar Days on Feb. 19, with sodas and beers on sale for a buck apiece, and hot dogs for $2.
Meanwhile, Triple Crown contender Bolt d’Oro, scheduled to make his three-year-old debut in the Grade II, $400,000 San Felipe Stakes at 1 1/16 miles on March 10, is due to work Wednesday, weather permitting.
“We’ll see how the rain goes,” Ruis said.
