A solid group of 10 sophomore fillies, headed by Ben and Sally Warren’s classy homebred Warren’s Showtime, will go six furlongs in Saturday’s $150,000 Evening Jewel Stakes for eligible California-bred or sired runners. Sponsored by the CTBA, the Evening Jewel is part of the lucrative Golden State Series.
A daughter of red hot sire Clubhouse Ride, out of the Grade I winning Affirmative mare Warren’s Veneda, Warren’s Showtime, who is trained by Craig Lewis, is a three-time stakes winner at one mile on turf, most recently taking the China Doll Stakes here on March 7.
“It’s not my preference, but she’s been cooped-up so long and she’s just got to run,” said Lewis. “She’s much better going two turns on grass, but that said, good horses do good things.”
Been Studying Her, a KMN Racing homebred filly by Fast Anna, has been idle since well beaten as the 3-1 favorite by Warren’s Showtime in the one mile turf Cal Cup Oaks here Jan. 18 and will hope to rebound for trainer Art Sherman.
A winner of two consecutive allowance sprints at Golden Gate Fields on March 5 & 27, Bulletproof One appears to be the speed of the field and will be seeking her sixth win (two of them in stakes) from 11 starts. Owned by Gary and Cecil Barber, Eclipse Thoroughbreds, Wachtel Stable and partners, she’s trained by Peter Miller.
