ARCADIA, Calif. – Yuvetsi, Anonymity, and Skye Diamonds were the first three finishers of the Grade 3 Rancho Bernardo Handicap on Aug. 12 at Del Mar. One may be bound for the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint on Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs, pending the outcome of the Grade 3 L.A. Woman Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita.

Their trainers – John Sadler, Richard Mandella, and Bill Spawr – say the BC Filly and Mare Sprint is on their minds, but that a win in the $100,000 L.A. Woman Stakes is necessary to justify the journey.

“I think she needs to win,” Sadler said of Yuvetsi. “We’ll run Sunday and play it by ear.”

The L.A. Woman Stakes, at 6 1/2 furlongs, drew only five runners. The California-bred stakes winner Show It N Moe It and Classy Tune, who has yet to win a stakes, are the other runners in a small field.
