QARAABA looks like a mare to watch in the early portion of 2013.  The talented daughter of Shamardal took her second start since being imported from England with a last-to-first flourish in the Grade 3 Robert J. Frankel Stakes at Santa Anita on December 30.  A useful handicapper overseas, Qaraaba has been extremely impressive in both stateside appearances for trainer Simon Callaghan.

Workout analysts reported that FLASHBACK was the real deal and the juvenile full brother to multiple Grade 1 winner Zazu didn't disappoint first-out on December 8.  Trained by Bob Baffert, Flashback went off the even-money favorite going seven furlongs over the Hollywood cushion track and drew away by 3 1/2 lengths with a 93 Beyer Speed Figure.  A $260,000 weanling purchase, Flashback looks destined for stakes competition sooner rather than later.
