It's a fair step up in class from a maiden win at the Pleasanton Fair to the big time at Betfair Hollywood Park, but “TDN Rising Star”
She's A Tiger negotiated the hike with aplomb, holding off a late rally from E Equalsmcsquared to take Saturday's Landaluce S. The $150,000 KEESEP yearling, a 3/4-sister to this stable's former star Smiling Tiger, was hammered down to 20 cents on the dollar for her Pleasanton unveiling June 22 and nearly beat the starter with an exceptionally fast break. From there, as the marginal comments in the Daily Racing Form state, it was accomplished in "workout fashion," as she reported home by nine lengths. Sent off at 3-5 to take it to the next level, She's A Tiger was quick into stride, but had some pace pressure to deal with from her inside in the form of South Sound. The heavy chalk ultimately got the better of that one and set sail for home while still well within the hands of Frank Alvarado. She began to wait on horses a bit in the final eighth of a mile and Alvarado was forced to resort to the whip, but She's A Tiger proved best in the finish. "They went very fast and everybody who tried to chase her paid the price,” said winning trainer Jeff Bonde. “[E Equalsmcsquared] came with a good charge late. My filly got tired, but she still ran well. I think she's a really good horse, I really do." Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
