SPECTACULAR MOVE Battles Back to Get Maiden Win at Santa Anita
After placing in a Maiden Special Weight to a next out stakes winner last time out, SPECTACULAR MOVE made her turf debut at Santa Anita and put in a game effort to get the win by a neck. Racing about 6 1/2 furlongs on the downhill turf course, the 3-year-old filly from the first crop of ALTERNATION dueled between horses early after breaking from post seven to be a head in front after the first quarter. She raced on the outside of another around the turn and then between horses in upper stretch. SPECTACULAR MOVE was passed by a horse on her outside as they raced to the wire, but dug in and fought back to reclaim the lead and get the victory. Lifetime record: 4-1-0-1, $$24,240. O-Kaleem Shah. B-Justice Farm & Greg Justice. T-Simon Callaghan.
