ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 5, 2016)–Unhurried early, Irish-bred Mirage saved ground throughout and rallied determinedly under Flavien Prat to take Friday’s $58,000 Santa Anita allowance feature by a neck. Trained by Simon Callaghan, she covered a flat mile on turf in 1:35.87.
Breaking from the nine post in a field of ten 3-year-old fillies, Mirage, who added blinkers today for the first time in her sixth career start, folded over cleverly while next to last going into the Club House turn and wheeled three-wide when called upon turning for home.
