Stellar Wind ‘Right On Target’ For June 3 Beholder Mile

Champion Stellar Wind worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Friday in 1:00.40. The Eclipse Award winner as outstanding three-year-old filly of 2015 is preparing for the Grade I, $ 400,000 Beholder Mile on June 3.

“It was a very nice work, super easy,” trainer John Sadler said. “She’s right on target for the Beholder. She’ll have two more works before the race.”

Regular rider Victor Espinoza will be aboard for each, including the next one a week from today. Jose Contreras was aboard Stellar Wind Friday.

“She looked good,” said Espinoza, recently elected to racing’s Hall of Fame, who watched Friday’s breeze that was in company with stablemate Pappou. The latter was clocked in 1:00.80.

“Stellar Wind has never been a fast work filly,” Espinoza said. “She saves it for the races, and that’s what we want.”

Also possible for the Beholder are two-time champion Songbird and streaking graded stakes winner Vale Dori, winner of her last six races.
