Champagne Room ‘Awesome’ In Final Tuneup For Las Virgenes | Horse Racing |

Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner and eventual Eclipse Champion Champagne Room worked five furlongs Sunday at Santa Anita in a minute flat, breezing, in preparation for her three-year-old debut against monster Santa Ynez winner Unique Bella in next Sunday’s Grade II Las Virgenes Stakes at one mile.

“Awesome” is how trainer Peter Eurton summed up the drill under exercise rider Jose (Pepi) Aragon. “I’m very pleased with her work.”

Champagne Room, a bay daughter of Broken Vow, has been firing bullets since her Breeders’ Cup win last Nov. 5 at Santa Anita. Four of her last seven recorded breezes were the fastest at their respective distances.

Among the 123 recorded works on Santa Anita’s fast main track Sunday was a seven furlong move by Sheer Flattery, a contender for Saturday’s Grade III Robert B. Lewis Stakes for three-year-old Triple Crown prospects. Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer called it “a nice workout’ under exercise rider Freddie Rodriguez.
