3YO GIRONA Much the Best in Second Start at Santa Anita

Switching to the dirt for her second career start, GIRONA pulled away in the stretch for a 5 1/4-length Maiden win at Santa Anita. The 3-year-old filly from the second crop of ALTERNATION dueled with a pair down the backstretch racing six furlongs. She began to make her move heading into the turn, took the lead on the turn with two furlongs to go, and drew off in the final 1/16th for a dominating victory. Lifetime record: 2-1-0-0, $20,151.
