On Saturday at Golden Gate Fields, the featured race is the $50,000 Camilla Urso Stakes. Scheduled to be run at six-furlongs on their synthetic main track, the race has drawn a field of seven fillies and mares.
Living the Life (IRE) has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 9-5 for trainer Gary Mandella. A five-year-old daughter of Footstepsinthesand (IRE), she is a seven-time career winner and has won two of her three North American starts since making her stateside debut in August. A Grade 2 winner, she was last seen finishing tenth in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (G1). Flavien Prat will be aboard and they will break from the inside post.
Tabled to Gold trying for first stakes win
Tabled with Gold is the second choice at morning line odds of 4-1 for trainer Antonio Diaz. A five-year-old California-bred daughter of Formal Gold, she has won seven of her sixteen starts and will be returning to stakes competition after winning an allowance race at Golden Gate in February in a minor upset performance. Jockey David Lopez will be back aboard and they are scheduled to break from post position three.
Ramona’s Wildcat looking to return to competitive form
Also in the field and a longshot at 15-1 on the morning line is Ramona’s Wildcat for trainer Doug O’Neill. A minor stakes winner, the four-year-old daughter of Wildcat Heir has won two of her eight starts and is trying to round back into winning form after a fourth-place finish against optional claiming competition at Santa Anita. Juan Hernandez will be in the irons and they will break from the outside post in the field of seven.
With the Breeders’ Cup rapidly approaching at Santa Anita November 1 and 2, some of the future lines look too good to pass. This is particularly true with a wide-open Breeders’ Cup Classic field that seems to have oddsmakers perplexed.
