The daughter of Malibu Moon filly out of the Brother Derek mare Miss Derek followed up a 6 ½ length maiden victory in her fourth career start Oct. 14 with a nose win over Tambo in the Desi Arnaz five weeks later at Del Mar. She’s earned $117,160.
An Uncle Mo filly out of the Malibu Moon mare Tonasah, Grazia won her debut by 3 ¼ lengths Nov. 12 for Gandharvi LLC and Commonwealth Thoroughbreds LLC. The victory at six furlongs was worth $36,600.
Chatalas will be aiming for her third win – and second in a Grade II – for Rancho Temescal Thoroughbred Partners, Dan Agnew and William Chatalas and trainer Mark Glatt.
The daughter of Gun Runner and the Indian Charlie mare Indian Safari captured the Chandelier Oct. 7 at Santa Anita before finishing ninth in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies last month. She’s banked $207,200.
A 9-1 upset winner over maidens nearly a month ago, Great Forty Eight will make her stakes debut for Firebird Racing LLC and trainer Tim Yakteen. The daughter of Constitution and the Exchange Rate mare Angela’s Ashes is 1-for-4 with earnings of $54,220.
Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella will seek his first Starlet success with two start maiden Flynn’s Chance.
A Medaglia d’Oro filly out of the Bernardini mare Venetian Sonata, Flynn’s Chance was third – defeated by 1 ¾ lengths – behind Great Forty Eight Nov. 12 when stretched to eight furlongs. She’s earned $7,820 for Spendthrift Farm LLC.
Completing the field is Pacific Rose, who was supplemented for $7,500 by owners California Racing Partners, Ciaglia Racing LLC and Dominic Savides.
Winless in four starts for trainer Doug O’Neill, the daughter of Not This Time and the Bernardini mare Naples Rose has earned $21,080. She has been fourth in three of her outings, including the Chandelier, when checking in 2 ½ lengths behind Chatalas.
