We have decided to pass on Sunday’s Grade 3 Wilshire Stakes and will continue with the original plan of waiting until the Grade 1 Gamely. While Going to Vegas remains in great physical order, this ultimately came down to wanting to keep her as fresh as possible for the bigger races throughout the rest of the year.
Trainer Richard Baltas was pleased with how Going to Vegas galloped and gate schooled this morning. As a follow-up to our update yesterday, she will be proceeding with Saturday’s Santa Ana Stakes at Santa Anita Park.
Trainer Richard Baltas has opted to enter the Grade 3 Santa Ana Stakes this upcoming Saturday at Santa Anita. Baltas said she has bounced out of her recent work with great energy. Though he believes more time could potentially benefit her, he wanted to enter today and take a look at the race to keep it open as an option.
We will follow up regarding entry information later this afternoon. Baltas said he will make a final determination regarding running based on how she gallops tomorrow.
