Santa Ysabel Stakes 2023: Faiza remains unbeaten

Faiza blasts away the Santa Ysabel Stakes 2023 field late to win by two and a quarter lengths, and makes it four wins from four starts for master trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Flavien Prat

Grade 3 – Purse $100,000 – 1 1/16 miles – Dirt – 3-Year-Old Fillies


What looked like a solid test of her credentials saw any doubts blown away by FAIZA as she put up arguably the best performance seen by a three-year-old filly so far this year.

The outsider of the five runners Blessed Touch was keen to get to control the early speed and she went into the clubhouse turn just in advance of the eventual winner FAIZA. They dueled briefly but Blessed Touch soon moved clear of the chalk as they settled down the backstretch.

The pace was strong but Faiza was traveling comfortably with And Tell Me Nolies in third and Justique on the outside in the fourth spot.

The strongly fancied Pride Of The Nile was angsty at the gate and then hit the gate and broke poorly and found herself in the last spot. She never recovered, and that gate experience could have been the factor in what was a very poor run.

As they turned for the home stretch, Faiza came upside Blessed Touch and soon edged clear of that rival. And Tell Me Nolies tried to attack Faiza in the stretch, but was no match for the Baffert runner and had to settle for second, while Blessed Touch held well for third place.
