2017 Desert Stormer Stakes Entries at Santa Anita Park

Pretty N Cool

Bob Baffert trained filly has 12 career starts with five wins, two seconds and a third-place finish. She enters off a respectable runner-up finish in the G3 Vagrancy Handicap at Belmont Park May 5 which followed a terrific win in the G3 Las Flores Stakes here March 5, six months away and a sixth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Del Mar. Before that was a fourth in the G3 Rancho Bernardo Handicap on that track in August, a nice win in the minor C.E.R.F Stakes July 20, another six-month layoff, a third in the G2 Santa Ynez Stakes in January and a disappointing fourth after setting the pace and tiring in the G1 Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos December 12. In 2015, she won the G2 Matron Stakes, had a game runner-up finish behind Breeders' Cup Juvenile Filly winner Songbird in the G1 Del Mar Debutante September 5, posted a win by 2 3/4 lengths as favorite in the G2 Sorrento Stakes and had a maiden score by 4 1/2 lengths. She was very good at the beginning of her career and has been ramping up again ahead of this weekend. Martin Garcia will be in the saddle trying to keep the roll going from gate 4.

Invested Prospect

Impressive Blaine Wright trained filly has eight career starts with seven nice wins. She makes her graded stakes debut Sunday on a nice four race win streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming last time out at Emerald Downs April 23, another Allowance Optional Claiming at Oak Tree at Pleasanton in September, another Allowance Optional Claiming at Golden Gate in August and an Allowance at Emerald Downs last July. She also posted consecutive minor stakes wins earlier in her career - the Northwest Farms in September, 2015 and the Seattle Stakes in May, 2016. Invested Prospect has been competitive so far and hopes to be again in her first foray into graded stakes company. Tyler Baze has been tabbed to ride from the rail.
