No Sneaking into Summertime


Sneaking Out | Horsephotos

KMN Racing LLC’s Sneaking Out (Indian Evening) heads into Sunday’s GII Summertime Oaks as the winningest runner of the five-horse field. A first-out second against state-breds at Del Mar last August, the bay romped by 10 1/2 lengths over six panels next time at the seaside oval in September. Shelved for the remainder, the Jerry Hollendorfer pupil returned with a professional score going 5 1/2 furlongs against open company over the Golden Gates synthetic Mar. 22. Victorious in Santa Anita’s 6 1/2-furlong Evening Jewel S. Apr. 6, Sneaking Out crossed the wire first in the Angels Flight S. May 4, however, was demoted to second behind My Miss Rose (Magician {Ire}). TDN Rising Star‘ Flor de La Mar (Tiznow) was heavily backed for her career debut at Santa Anita Jan. 20 and did not disappoint, scoring by an easy five lengths. Fifth in a sloppy seven-furlong optional claimer Mar. 20, the Bob Baffert trainee finished 5 1/4 lengths behind winner Bellafina (Quality Road) but well in front of Grade I scorer Chasing Yesterday (Tapit) in the Apr. 6 GI Santa Anita Oaks. Far out of it in her latest in the GI Kentucky Oaks May 3, the Godolphin runner gets a significant class break here. Stakes placed Colonial Creed (Jimmy Creed), victorious going nine panels in an optional claimer on the Santa Anita turf May 3, tries dirt for Richard Baltas, who strikes with 16% of runners switching from turf to dirt. Victor Espinoza, up for her latest win, gets back aboard.
