Buena Vista Stakes

Grade 2 – Purse $200,000 – 1 mile – Turf – 4-Year-Old and Up – Fillies & Mares

We had seven go to post for this fillies and mares contest and from the gate, it was Kitty Kitana and Tik Tok Famous who were pressing for the early speed.

The favorite and eventual winner QUATROELLE was caught wide in fifth round the clubhouse turn, with her arch-rival Closing Remarks content to stalk her old adversary.

As they headed down the backstretch it was Kitty Kitana just a half-length clear of Tik Tok Famous with Macadamia and School Dance close up, and these four had broken 4 lengths clear of the others.

The pace was strong with a 23.32 secs opening quarter, and it looked set up for a closer.

As they reached the end of the backstretch, Tik Tok Famous took over from Kitty Kitana, but it was here that the race changed completely, as Quatroelle made a sweeping move outside, while Closing Remarks was impeded badly by the fading Kitty Kitana and that seemed to be her chance gone.

As they hit the top of the home stretch, it was School Dance and Nadette who went to the front, but four others were lining up behind to play their cards.

Macadamia pitched to the inside rail to take the lead at the sixteenth pole but was immediately challenged outside by Quatroelle who surged to the front with just 50 yards to run.

Closing Remarks ran well to steal third right on the wire and will be viewed by many as an unlucky loser.

San Simeon Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $100,000 – 6 ½ furlongs – Downhill Turf – 4-Year-Olds and Up

Late runner Motorious adopts a change of tactics to follow the early speed and takes out the Grade 3 St Simeon Stakes in devastating fashion.

As they blasted from the gates it was Brickyard Ride who had already tasted success on the downhill course who set a good speed, and he was followed a length away by the eventual winner MOTORIOUS.

Sumter who broke slowly soon made up the ground and switched to the inside rail as they went down the hill and was now a close third with Anarchist stalking the fast early speed in the fourth spot.

As they made their way to the home stretch, the front four remained in the same order with the Whatmakessammyrun close up in fifth and just four lengths from the lead.

They hit the top of the stretch and Motorious came to join and pass the long-time leader Brickyard Ride and quickly widened two lengths clear.

Anarchist closed late to grab Brickyard Ride for second on the wire, but this was all Motorious for a very impressive win.
