Oak Tree: U R an unlucky filly

Email

U R All That I Am had a tough trip in Saturday's California Cup Distaff over six furlongs on turf, losing by 1 1-2 lengths to La Nez ($8) after racing in traffic in the stretch.

Ridden by a Joel Rosario, U R All That I Am was fourth in a field of eight with a quarter-mile remaining, but was stuck behind the frontrunners while racing toward the inside. Rosario guided her to the outside, but ran out of ground and could only finish third, a neck behind runner-up Perfect Vintage. Rosario later expressed frustration at his trip.

La Nez won for the second consecutive year on California Cup Day. She won the 2009 Cal Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita.
