2014 Santa Ynez Stakes Race Favorite Entries

Taste Like Candy - Jerry Hollendorfer trained filly has two career starts - the first was a good one - a 5 1/2 furlong MSW score by 6 1/2 lengths with a 85 Beyer Speed Figure at Santa Anita October 20. Last time out was another good performance - a second to Streaming in the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes at Hollywood Park December 7. She gets back to sprinting Saturday and will be listed as the favorite going in. Rafael Bejarano gets the call from the rail

Crushed Velvet - Bob Baffert pupil makes just her second career start Saturday after a win in her debut December 8 - a MSW at Hollywood Park by an impressive 5 1/4 lengths.
