LOS ALAMITOS, CA—JANUARY 10, 2020—Martha Wells’ Yanque will go after his third consecutive stakes victory at 550-yards when he faces five outstanding rivals in the $16,000 Barbra B Handicap. First post is 5:25 p.m. (PST).
Yanque was too much for his rivals to handle in both the Scott Lewis Handicap on November 8 and the Paul Ford Handicap on December 1. He won both races by 1 1/2 and he did so in near wire-to-wire fashion.
The 5-year-old gelding by Favorite Cartel has always shown a special finishing kick and the 550-yard distance has allowed him to flex his muscles in route to convincing victories. Ruben Lozano will ride Yanque for trainer Matt Fales.
Dan Wilson’s 7-year-old distance specialist Run Raging Rhino Run will be looking to defend his stakes title in the Barbra B Handicap. He won this race by 1-¼ lengths last year, but he was second to Yanque in the Paul Ford two races back. He’s been first or second in eight of his last 11 starts with all but one of those starts coming at either 870 or 550 yards.
Thompson Racing’s Ballast Point, second in the Scott Lewis, will also look to spoil Yanque’s bid for a third straight win. He enters after winning a division of the 870 yard Snowbound Superstar.
