A Horse Named Carlsbad

by The Editors on March 29, 2009

Carlsbadsantapaula09 Ben298.JpgCarlsbad, the undefeated Arizona mighty mite, bumped it up to five wins in a row today to claim the $100,000 Santa Paula Stakes at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.

Owned by her breeder, Dennis Weir, Carlsbad won her four starts in Arizona by a combined margin of more than 50 lengths. Weir transferred the Arizona-bred daughter of Rocky Bar to the Southern California barn of Jeff Mullins after she captured the Arizona Oaks by 13 1/4 lengths Feb. 21. She began her career last fall at Turf Paradise with Kevin Lewis.

We’re kind of bummed we weren’t there because we would have bet on her to win. The only way a horse could have a better name would be if it was Carslbadistan.
