The 2023 Summertime Oaks was the feature at Santa Anita on Saturday and it provided the stage for Window Shopping, a daughter of Triple Crown hero American Pharoah, to make her stakes breakthrough in some style.

Kentucky Oaks form took a back seat as Window Shopping made her stakes breakthrough in the Summertime Oaks at Santa Anita on Saturday, easing clear for a convincing victory over longshots Ancient Peace and Lily Poo.

The Alys Look was a well-fancied second choice to benefit from class relief, but she was on the pace to the turn and then dropped right out. Window Shopping, the 7-2 third-choice, did the opposite, hunting around in mid-pack before surging into contention at the top of the lane.

She showed signs of inexperience in mid-stretch but got on with the job, running down Ancient Peace to win going away by a length and three-quarters, with a one-paced Lily Poo a half-length back in third. The favored Anywho, barnmate of the runner-up, was never in it and finished fourth.

“I was always in a good position,” said jockey Hector Berrios. “As soon as I asked her to move around the turn, she just switched on.”

Window Shopping is now two-for-four and trainer Richard Mandella – winning his first Summertime Oaks – may consider the G1 Clement L. Hirsch at Del Mar on August 5.
