Zillah Reddam’s Renee’s Titan
(Bernstein) pulled a major upset in Arcadia yesterday when she found her way to the GII Santa Ynez S. winner’s circle, a feat many had already conceded to 1-5 Beholder
(Henny Hughes), recipient of the Eclipse Award for champion 2-year-old filly two evenings earlier. The 20-1 Renee’s Titan brought up the back of the pack through the early stages as Small Moves
(Rockport Harbor) hustled up to take control with Dawn’s Charm
(Hard Spun) in pursuit through hot splits. As Small Moves fell back entering the turn, Dawn’s Choice took the lead, but was soon confronted by Beholder, who had rated wide in midpack down the backstretch. Beholder looked full or run entering the lane, but was unable to kick past a stubborn Dawn’s Charm. Meanwhile, Renee’s Titan had steadily improved up the rail, shifted into gear in midstretch and snuck by the two leaders to hit the wire in front. "I just sat on her and was as patient as I could be," said winning jockey Tyler Baze. "I didn’t care how far back we were but by the 3/16ths pole I knew it was time to get going. I skimmed the rail there, lost my stick, but she was running so I just did whatever I could to keep her going."
