I was sitting in front of the computer biding my time until the Santa Ana Stakes (Grade II) at Santa was supposed to be run at 3.25pm CA time, 7.25pm Eastern time, when the result popped up. Saved a lot of nervousness but it would have been nice to watch it live, didn’t mention they were running early! Hoop Of Colour had been waiting patiently for an allowance race to come up at Santa Anita and as it didn’t seem to be happening Graham thought he’d supplement her for the Santa Ana. That was a good idea! Many congratulations to Flaxman Holdings Ltd., and to this half-sister to our wonderful Aruna.
