SHEDARESTHEDEVIL & ÉCLAIR RATE BIG CHANCES IN WIDE-OPEN $75,000 ANOAKIA STAKES SUNDAY AT SIX FURLONGS

October 10, 2019

ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 10, 2019)—Trainer Simon Callaghan’s Shedaresthedevil and Bob Baffert’s Éclair rate big chances in a wide-open cast of six juvenile fillies going six furlongs in Sunday’s $75,000 Anoakia Stakes at Santa Anita. 

Shipped west to Callaghan following an impressive first-out maiden win at Churchill Downs on June 13, Shedaresthedevil cuts back in distance from a one mile turf stakes try at Del Mar on Sept. 2, while Éclair exits a facile three length maiden win going 5 ½ furlongs as the 1-2 favorite at Los Alamitos on Sept. 13.

SHEDARESTHEDEVIL

Owner: Glencrest Farm LLC and Qatar Racing Limited                          
Trainer: Simon Callaghan

Off as the 6-5 favorite in the one mile Juvenile Fillies Turf Sept. 2, this Kentucky-bred daughter of Daredevil showed the way early in a field of 11, but tired to finish fourth, beaten 5 ¾ lengths. Third, beaten six lengths two starts back in the Grade II, six furlong Sorrento Stakes, Shedaresthedevil rates top billing in what will be her third start for Callaghan.

ÉCLAIR

Owner: Sarah Kelly and Jane Wiltz                                   
Trainer: Bob Baffert

A $420,000 Fasig Tipton Santa Anita 2-year-old in Training Sale purchase this past June, this Kentucky-bred filly by Bernardini was an impressive maiden winner at Los Alamitos in what was her third start. With a solid five eighths mile work of 1:00.40 (2/37) to her credit here on Monday, Éclair should be very tough as she faces winners for the first time.
