The Lost in the Fog drew a field of eight while the Arizona Juvenile, for fillies, attracted a field of 11. Both races will be run at 6 ½ furlongs.
The Lost in the Fog
Named after the brilliant but star crossed colt who holds the track record pf 1:13.55 for winning this race in 2004, the Lost in the Fog has once again assembled the fastest 2-year-old colts and gelding on the grounds.
This year’s edition boils down to the Talented Trigger Warning. The Candy Ride colt has been the talk of the backstretch for some time. Since his winning maiden debut locally Nov. 20, Trigger Warning has reeled three works, punctuated by a bullet move of :34.4 (best of 17) for three furlongs on Dec. 11. Trained by Joe Lejzerowicz, Trigger Warning will be reunited with Scott Stevens.
The two who finished behind Trigger Warning’s maiden win, Shane Doan and Bocephus, will take another shot. Shane Doan was actually favored over Trigger Warning in their first encounter but fell a length short of victory at the wire.
Az Juvenile Fillies
The fillies division does not lack for star power as Foggia and Mycella re-engage in battle after their first meeting ended with the latter eking out an half length win over the then undefeated Foggia at the wire.
Another to consider is the California ship-in Gorgeous Ginny who after breaking her maiden at Santa Anita at first asking went on to finish a game second in the $100,000 Landaluce Stakes.
