   Book Review became a Grade I winner last time she cut back from a route to a sprint, and the angle again proved productive as the 4-year-old stamped her ticket to the GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Santa Anita Nov. 1. The homebred kicked off her career with Chad Brown, and first signaled that she had a bright future when earning back-to-back 98 Beyer Speed Figures--first behind eventual champion Questing (GB) (Hard Spun) in a Belmont allowance last June and then when she took a Saratoga allowance the following month. She failed to fire in the GI Test S., but bounced back with listed stakes tallies at Charles Town and Belmont before a fifth in the GI Gazelle S. going nine panels at Aqueduct in November. Subsequently transferred to Bob Baffert, the bay rallied late to best Reneesgotzip (City Zip) in Santa Anita’s GI La Brea S. Dec. 26. She hadn’t been seen since back-to-back second-place finishes in the GII La Canada S. Jan. 20 and GII Santa Maria S. Feb. 16.
   Dropping back early while climbing a bit as Winding Way (Malibu Moon) and Teddy’s Promise, Book Review sprang into action on the home bend and began to cut into the top two’s edge in the lane. She struck the front at the sixteenth pole, and strode out beautifully to win convincingly. 
   “She loves this distance and it helped that we had a couple of good front runners,” said Mike Marlow, assistant to Baffert. “It set up well. It's actually what we had in mind. [Rafael Bejarano] rode her well. That was her first start on synthetic and that might have been her best footing. I think she really liked it. I'd guess there would be something for her at Del Mar."
