Meet Saturday when they finished a head apart in the Grade II Arcadia Stakes at one mile on turf, could return for an encore performance in the Grade I, $ 400,000 Frank E. Kilroe Mile on Santa Anita Handicap Day, March 11.

Both camps reported Sunday that their charges came out of the Arcadia in good order, trainer Carla Gaines speaking of Bolo and trainer Kenny Black of What a View.

Bolo, making his first start since last July 17 when he finished ninth in the Eddie Read at Del Mar, appeared beaten when fourth in the field of five at the three-sixteenths marker, but unleashed a furious late rally under Mike Smith to overtake pacesetting What a View who just failed to hold off Bolo.

It marked the second straight year Bolo has won the Arcadia, but stay tuned. What a View turned the tables on Bolo when they met again in the 2016 Kilroe.

Smith also guided Bob Baffert’s Argentine-bred Vale Dori to victory in yesterday’s Grade II Santa Maria and the trainer stated following the race that she’d be pointed to the Grade I Santa Margarita Stakes at a mile and one eighth on March 18.
